Figure out what your dog ate and how much they of it. Especially if it’s chocolate!

If it looks like your pup ate a giant’s portion of sweets, your Vet may advise coming in immediately. On the other hand, if your furry friend just took a few nibbles, your vet might recommend keeping them home and watching for symptoms. No matter what, we recommend calling your vet and getting their insight on the situation.

Chocolate poisoning can result in:

  • Diarrhea
  • Rapid breathing and restlessness
  • Increased heart rate
  • Increased urination
  • Tremors
  • Seizures

Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for an increase in symptom intensity.

In all likelihood, your pup (and you) might have a rough night, but be a-okay by morning! As long as symptoms don’t escalate, your fur baby should be back to themselves in no time.
