My 60 pd boxer...

My 60 pd boxer just ate about 8 pieces of chocolate fudge.

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?

She has thrown up twice but it is the dog food she ate about 2 hours ago, not the fudge

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

Her name is ***** ***** she is 9 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Ozzie?

9 years old

it was made from a store bought box of make it yourself. she ate probably about 1/2 pd
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
are you there?

I am here yes

I am not that panicked here

I see this tons and tons and I have yet to have a dog react really poorly to eating store package fudge mixes

Worst case will be vomiting or diarrhea and I doubt even that
