My 9 lb. Chihuahua...

My 9 lb. Chihuahua ate a large chocolate cupcake. What should I do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the Chihuahua will be able to digest that. What is the Chihuahua's name and age?

Name is***** approx. 8 yrs.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Balto?

He is in good health otherwise. He probably ate the paper wrapper also.
