an hour.

Thank you! I did some calculations and one piece is 12 grams less than half of an ounce.

The symptoms at an ounce in a 10 pound dog would be:

  • Vomiting
  • GI Upset
  • Hyperactivity

Restlessness

I suspect they will be fine. I would watch for GI upset, because this candy is very rich and could cause Pancreatitis.

I do not think they will be showing signs of toxicity with the amount ingested, but does warrant watching.,

Please hit reply to discuss this information,

Joan

Did you have any concerns or questions about the information? I am here to assist you. The Information supplied is based on Dark chocolate and the weight of the smallest dog at 10 pounds.
