Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. I am sorry to hear your puppy got some chocolate and was not feeling well.
Chocolate can be toxic. The symptoms can rage from mild stomach upset and increased drinking to seizures and death. Chocolate is also high in fat and can result in pancreatitis. The level of toxicity would depend on the amount of chocolate consumed and the type.
A lick of chocolate could be enough to cause digestive upset but should not result in serious complications. If he was going to have life threatening complications we would have seen signs long before now.
If he seems fine now then I suspect the worst is over. In the future I would not allow any chocolate even a small lick from your fingers.
I would just keep an eye on him for the next 24 hours but I suspect he will be fine. If he stops eating, has any vomiting or seems painful in the abdomen then this could indicate that the pancreas has be effected and he should be seen by a vet right away.
