My 6 mo old golden doodle ate Dove dark chocolate candy

My 6 mo old...

My 6 mo old golden doodle ate Dove dark chocolate candy (cranberry center), about 5 to 10pieces, he weighs approx 25 lbs.

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

Reiley, age 6 - 7 months.

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

Only that he is to be neutered next week. Up to date on all vaccines.

Air have no idea, about6 - 8?

Okay

That is a fair amount of we are at 6-8 ounces

I realize that now all of that is dark chocolate but we dont want to take a chance

Found a scrap of the candy bag. Net wt. was 6 oz, so I estimate he had 3oz

Okay that is much better!

That means only 11/2 ounces of chocolate

We do not have to induce vomiting but should watch for vomiting or diarrhea (unlikely now)

Okay?

Should vomit within 15-20 minutes

But if does not we will not re-dose
