Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that your pup ate chocolate M & M's. Although chocolate is toxic they do need to eat a certain amount per pound of body weight to get sick.

The good news is that milk chocolate is less toxic than dark, M & M's are not all chocolate, and she's a decent sized dog. So this may not be as bad as it could be.

How much does your pup weigh?

How much chocolate did she eat (1 ounce, 2 ounces?)?

How long ago did this occur?

How is she behaving now?

Does she normally have a sensitive stomach?

Do you have 3% hydrogen peroxide?
