Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Good news there isn't much chocolate in these kinds of graham crackers. So, for a dog Porter's size, this isn't overly worrisome. If anything we could see mild short term GI upset (vomiting, diarrhea) but we may not even see that here. So while we could induce vomiting (which I am happy to discuss), we don't need to. Just take things easy and monitor for today. As well to offset any GI upset, you can consider offering a light diet option. Examples of an easily digestible diet include cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, scrambled egg, or meat baby food (as long as its free from garlic or onion powder). Ideally, we want to offer this as small frequent meals to keep the stomach settled. If his stools get a bit loose, canned pumpkin can be added to these meals to firm them but we'd expect no lasting harm here for him at all.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
