Friend, not likely for 5 oz of milk chocolate to be systemically toxic or fatal to a 22 lbs dog. However, to be on the safe side I would try to make him vomit with hydrogen peroxide 3%. This is what you can do:

1- To induce vomiting give him 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide orally.

2- Allow him to walk for a minute and move his belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If he does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.

3- If he does not vomit after the 3rd dose or you do not see the chocolate in the vomit, observe him for the next 24 hours. If he becomes hyperactive, muscle tremors, changes in respiration, etc. have him checked immediately by ER veterinarian, these are symptoms that could progress to life-threatening seizures or cardiac arrhythmias. If no symptoms after 24 hours (especially the first 12 hours) unlikely for symptoms to develop.

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!

he only had a total of 1 oz
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Okay, thank you for the clarification. If it is a total of 1oz even less likely to be toxic. I would not induce vomiting, I don't expect any symptoms.
