How much does Peanut weigh, please? 1/4 ounce per pound of that % can cause theobromine toxicity (vomiting, agitation, tremors, soon after ingestion).

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
about 30 pounds or so
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

That's good to hear. She didn't ingest nearly enough (at least 7.5 ounces) to intoxicate herself. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but Peanut will remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
