Question by  Marlon (21)

Is my dog sick from consuming chocolate?


Answer by  traumatised (3285)

Chocolate contains theobromine (small amounts cause digestive problems, toxic in sufficient quantities). If your dog experiences hyperexcitability, hyperirritability, increased heartrate, frequent urination, diarrhea or vomiting, get to a vet ASAP.

Your dog may very well be sick from eating chocolate. Just a little bit can kill a small dog. Larger dogs can tolerate more. Please see a vet.

Dogs can become sick after consuming chocolate particularly if they ate a lot compared to the dog's size and weight. Take the dog to the vet if you suspect poisoning.

If your dog ate chocolate, that is a bad thing. Chocolate is poisonous to dogs. The dog needs a vet.

White chocolate contains so little of the poisonous substance that it's not really considered poisonous for dogs. Milk, baker's and dark chocolate, on the other hand, is another story.  add a comment
