My Beagle-mix ate about 8 oz. of semi sweet chocolate chips.

Customer Question
My Beagle-mix ate about...

My Beagle-mix ate about 8 oz. of semi sweet chocolate chips. She's thrown up at least 7-8 times, trembles a bit and is clearly not herself. I called my vet and they said to keep an eye on her. But on the other hand, she's fairly perky when I walk her outside. Is there anything I can do to make her more comfortable?

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

Her name is ***** ***** she's 3 years old (a rescue dog).

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bella?

Not really, she's a hound dog for sure, and pretty sparky when feeling well.
