I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on your dog, please? Peppermint isn't toxic to dogs and it would take nearly 65 ounces of pure milk chocolate (30 ounces of pure dark chocolate) to intoxicate a dog with the theobromine in chocolate (vomiting, agitation, tremors). There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
