Please give me 5-10 minutes to type your answer. No need to accept the phone call request. Thank you.

Ok

Friend, it is not likely for 3 bites of a chocolate cupcake to be life-threatening to a 5 lbs Ollie. However, to be on the safe side I would try to make him vomit with hydrogen peroxide 3%. This is what you can do:

1- To induce vomiting give him 1/2 (half) teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide 3% orally. No need to dilute with water. 2- Allow him to walk for a minute and move his belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If he does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.3- If he does not vomit after the 3rd dose or you do not see the chocolate in the vomit, observe him for the next 24 hours. If he becomes hyperactive, muscle tremors, changes in respiration, etc. have him checked immediately by ER veterinarian, these are symptoms that could progress to life threatening seizures or cardiac arrhythmias. If no symptoms after 24 hours (especially the first 12 hours) unlikely for any symptoms to develop.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!

Well I did it three times and he did not throw up. Seems fine tho. If Theresa food I can give him to help it out of his system let me know thank you for your help

Unfortunately, no, there is no food that can help. I would keep an eye on him as we discussed above.

You're welcome. :)
