Customer Question
My Chiahauha/mix (not spelled...

My Chiahauha/mix (not spelled right) has just eaten a good sized bite off a brownie. Will this typically make her sick. I've kept chocolate away from her now. She sneeked it.

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

Her name is ***** ***** 2 years old. I am Velva Salisbury

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

I have put her back in her crate where she sleeps at night. Too soon probably to see any symptoms.

With this ingestion, you likely will see no ill effects but always best to know what to monitor for which can include

  • Vomiting
  • GI Upset
  • Hyper Tension
  • Hyperactivity
  • Restlessness

It doesn't sound like enough was ingsted of the brownie to require induction of vomiting but if xylitol (sugar free) was used then this is a different situation.

If you see muscle tremors, vomiting is not subsiding, or hyper excitability then please consider a veterinary er because these can be issues with chocolate toxicity. But if you see gi upset only then this should pass within the next 24 hours

Typically chocolate toxicity symptoms peak at 4-6 hours so if you pass this mark without symptoms then your dog should be just fine but taking a few precautions tonight:

- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg per pound every 12 hours for 3 days
- Leash walks to help the chocolate pass more readily of >15 minutes
- Tomorrow bland diet of white rice and lean boiled meat such as chicken in small more frequent meals but waiting at least 12 hours after vomiting has subsided if this symptom is seen

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know who else I can assist you both today. I am onilne another 15 minutes tonight

If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask! If you would like to accept my answer, please press RATE OUR CONVERSATION at the top of your screen (I am not compensated in any other way). Bonuses are always welcome. Thanks!
