not sure on weight, we did see some chocolate in the vomit and she ate about the equivialnt of 2 or 3 kisses
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Friend, chocolate is toxic to dogs, but, it depends on how much chocolate is consumed and the weight of the dog. In this case, not likely for 2-3 kisses to be systemically toxic or life-threatening to King Charles dog; she may vomit otherwise she will be fine. The fact that you saw the chocolate in the vomit makes it less likely for the chocolate to be toxic. No need to make her vomit with hydrogen peroxide, she will be fine.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
