Im not sure a regular single size it was a small box. He ate them all but 7
Just wondering if you are still there? If you provide me with the approximate I'll says I can give you an idea of toxicity. The fact that it wasn't solid milk chocolate is a good thing. There is a great possibility that it will just go signs of vomiting and diarrhea but I want to be able to calculate an approximate number. In any case it may be beneficial just to induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide so that we are not dealing with toxicity or severe gastrointestinal signs. In order to induce vomiting you give 1 teaspoon per 10 pounds hydrogen peroxide. He would get 2 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide. If he does not vomit you can repeat this in 15-20 minutes. Do not repeat more than twice.

Great just give me one minute....

Okay based on my toxicity calculator he will most likely just experienced signs of stomach upset which may include vomiting or diarrhea. You certainly do not have to induce vomiting if you don't want to however if he is a very sensitive little guy and you are concerned about the repercussions of eating the chocolate, caramel and peanut butter then inducing vomiting would be the best option. You also have a choice of taking him to a Veterinary Clinic and having them induce vomiting.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns. I will be on the site periodically this evening if you have any additional concerns. Again you can try the peroxide one time if you would like. You can give it by syringe or using a baster. If you are satisfied with my assistance, a five star rating is always appreciated. Even after the rating we can get to know you this conversation for about a week so keep me posted. Sincerely ***** *****
