I understand that your pet Piper ate about 6 thin mints. I have looked up thin mints and saw that they are about 32 grams per 4 cookies. If she ingested 6 cookies that is around 48 grams of chocolate. This sounds like a pretty low amount to cause any toxicity concernes; however, I will double check based on her weight.

How much does Piper weigh?

Even a rough estimate is ok

75lbs
Dog Veterinarian: Drhollowayvet,

Ok. At this weight she should be fine after ingesting only 48 grams of milk chocolate. At the most she may have an upset stomach, but no toxicity concerns.
IF you see any signs of an upset stomach (vomiting or diarrhea), then you can give her a bland diet of boiled plain chicken and rice or cottage cheese to see if that helps her out. IF she still isn't able to recover fully, then a vet visit should be considered after 24-48 hrs.

Please take care of that girl and no more chocolate for her! At certain amounts chocolate can cause major issues in pets.
