Customer: We have a 4 month old golden retriever puppy. Weighs 21 lbs. He ate a small portion of a muffin that is vanilla but has chocolate chips and a little strings of chocolate icing across the top. So he may have eaten some of the icing, as well as maybe 2-4 1/4 inch by 1/2 inch pieces of chocolate each maybe a little more then an eighth of an inch thick. This happened about 25-30 minutes ago. So far he is not showing any unusual signs.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Has he thrown up since eating the chips?
Customer: No, he hasn’t thrown up.
JA: What's the puppy's name?
Customer: Milo
JA: Is there anything else the Vet should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: i can’t think of anything else.

Hello! I am sorry your pet is having problems. My name is***** I am a licensed veterinarian with Just Answer. Thank you for visiting the site. I hope to be of great help to you. Please give me 10 minutes to consider your pet’s case and respond. Just Answer may offer you a Premium Service phone call but I cannot make calls right now.

Give 10mg of human over-the-counter Famotidine (Pepcid AC) from human drug stores. It’s a drug for human and heartburn that can prevent upset stomach in some cases. If your pet starts vomiting or not eating within 12 hours let me know or see a vet. Do you have any questions about what I said?

This is not usually toxic. Pepcid is to help with an upset stomach.

Ok, we will give him Pepcid and see monitor him.

Let me know if you need more help. You can still chat with me later. I hope your pet recovers soon! Thank you for using Just Answer.
