My 11lb. Bischon just ate 8 oreos. What should I do.

Hi this is Dr. Gabby. 8 oreos are not enough to worry about chocolate toxicity because there are many other ingredients in them other than chocolate. But they are high in fat, and do contain a little chocolate so you may see some gastrointestinal upset over the next 48 hours. If she does develop an upset stomach you can give her 1/4 of a human 10 mg pepcid ac stomach acid reducer every 12 hours as needed.Feeding her a bland diet of plain cooked chicken and rice, if she has an upset stomach, can help as well.

Signs she needs to see the vet are severe lethargy, unable to keep water down for 12 hours, blood in the vomit or stool, and pale or abnormal gum color.

But hopefully she will not have any signs at all.
