My 35 pound Cockapoo...

My 35 pound Cockapoo just ate about 2 - 3 ounces of chocolate bar. What symptoms do I watch for? does he need to be seen by a Vet?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the Cockapoo will be able to digest that. What is the Cockapoo's name and age?

His name is ***** ***** he is 6 1/2.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Pepper?

He is 4 weeks recovering from ACL surgery

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I would be happy to help you

I am one of the veterinarians authorized on this site to answer questions by text and/or phone

No need to go to vet

No need to induce vomiting

The levels of Theobromine, Caffeine and Methylxanthine are not high enough to cause any signs

I hope that helps!

Okay?

Paul
