wrappers and all……
Yeah. Came home from shopping and there was the empty red felt bag on the floor….
Yep. HOLY CRAP!!!
She seems to be ok. We are of course still watching her. She was acting miserable. She eventually puked it up 4 hours or so after she ate it.
She had the big D this morning so I hope that is most of it and her only symptom.
Darling Husband was pissed, $25 down the shitter. 🙁

Poor thing, I hope he feels better. That can be a scary situation.

I’d call the vet.

@jesssamesssa: I’ve heard something like 1oz of milk chocolate to 1lb of dog is the max dogs can handle. I don’t know how much Lindt chocolate she gobbled up or how much she weighs, but definitely keep an eye on her if you can’t get into the vets with the holidays.

I would absolutely call the vet if you haven’t already. Chocolate is toxic to dogs. As are grapes? who knew…
It’s good that she’s throwing up, but he’s small. it’s not like a lab ate it.

Yes keep a close watch, although puking it up is helpful to get it out of her system!
Our dogs have gotten into chocolate a couple times, even though we try to be careful! They are dachshunds. One time was my Darling Husband, who was my then bf… he completely underestimated them and put the chocolate up on the kitchen table LOL. He forgot they could get up there when they were determined enough!
Ours have always ended up being ok though, they might have gotten sick and needed a few hours or overnight to feel better, but then they are ok.

OMG!… My small dog has eaten his fair share of chocolate. He was fine, just a little upset tummy and some pukage.

Our vet wasnt open yesterday. I know what signs to look for and she puked up chocolate and the wrappers. We will still keep an eye on her through tomorrow and if she isnt acting right we will take her in. But she will drink and she will eat some of her dog food.

General rule is:
Milk chocolate: one ounce per pound of body weight (so, without intervention, a 16 pound dog (7.2 kg) would likely die from eating one pound of milk chocolate)
Dark chocolate: 1/3 of an ounce per pound of body weight (around 5 ounces of dark chocolate for that same 16 pound dog)
Baker’s chocolate: 1/9 of an ounce per pound of body weight (around 1.8 ounces of baker’s chocolate for a 16 pound dog)Cocoa powder: 1/16 of an ounce per pound of dog (around 1 ounce of cocoa powder to kill a 16 pound dog)
White chocolate contains no chocolate, just cream. Many dogs are lactose intolerant so it can give them the shits and the sugar isn’t real good for them. Once the theobromine is in the dog’s bloodstream, the half-life is around 17.5 hours, so 24 hours or so after the dog has consumed the chocolate, if it is still alive, it’s probably going to make it.

Yikes, that is so scary. My dog once broke into my roommate’s room and ate a bit of a dark chocolate bar with espresso beans in it, I about had a heart attack and dropped him off at the vet the next morning and left him there so they could keep an eye on him. Thankfully he lived!

Please call your vet and tell them how much she ate. You may need to do something to make sure she’s ok. Better safe than sorry.

@jesssamesssa: Poor pup. It sounds like she’ll be okay though since she’s eating and drinking.

Both our dogs(one 75lb and one 10lb) ate 3 boxes of chocolates here the other day. >:( They were fine, just had to go out to the yard a lot.
