OMG how did it go last night. I had to stay up all night with my son once after he drank cough syrup. Hope everything is okay.

Sorry chromate is chocolate my phone autocorrected it and yay we made it through the night and neither show any signs of issues. I had talked to my vet as well as an er and they told me that because it had been so long since they ate it there was nothing they could do- the charcoal wouldn't absorb anything. The vet and er wasn't worried about my foxhound to much but kipper the hav was the one we had to worry about and watch closely. Thank you all so much for the thoughts and prayers I truly believe that works. I know small amounts of chocolate won't hurt a dog but with it being a bag of chocolates and a close friend of mine having a chihuahua that recently did the same thing and didn't make it I was very worried.

I am glad to read everyone is doing alright. Actually.....I work for a vet and we have had several cases of this come in. There is little "chocolate" in milk chocolate. So our perception of chocolate is different. The substance in chocolate that is highly dangerous to a dog is theobromine. Theobromine is naturally found in the cocoa bean and is a stimulant. This is what is dangerous to a dog. Many products we buy and consume have little "theobromine" in them. For example...hershey's chocolate bar,dove chocolate,regular chocolate chips. Always read the bag of course,but the most toxic form of chocolate in our houses is generally bakers chocolate (that nasty tasting bitter chocolate). The best chocolate for a dog is NONE, but generally speaking the common form we eat gives us heart attacks as owners if a dog eats it,but the dog will be fine because of the low content of true chocolate in it containing the stimulant.

yeah in this topic , it varies from dog to dog. My daughter's two dogs ate quite a bit of milk chocolate a few years ago with nothing but diarrhea but I know of a lab that ate one Oh Henry bar and nearly died , so you really have to monitor.
