We have had dogs for many years. Once in awhile they would get into chocolate. Just last week our dog got very sick. We called the vet, we thought she got into poison. While at the vet's office, she kept questioning us and finally I said "well, she got into a little chocolate..." The look on our vet's face was pure horror!! Turns out that is what made our dog so sick, even though this had happened in the past. She had chocolate toxicity. We nearly lost our dog. After several shots throughout the night to make her more comfortable, and two treatments of charcoal to soak up the damage, we were very lucky. It was scary, spare yourselves and KEEP CHOCOLATE OUT OF THE REACH OF YOUR DOGS, IT IS POISONOUS TO THEIR SYSTEMS. They are not designed to digest it, and it can KILL your dog. We learned our lesson and we were lucky.

My dog ate an entire bag of Chocolates while my family was out of the house. He puked a little, but he didn't have any MAJOR problems with it.

Here are some FACTS about chocolate poisoning.

For a 20 pound dog, he would have had to eat about 5-10 ounces of milk chocolate to die. He probably would have started to get serious poisoning signs after eating 3/4 of a pound of milk chocolate.

The darker the chocolate, the more serious the danger. There is a big change between milk chocolate which is mostly sugar and milk, and bakers chocolate, which is 100 % cocao. Bakers chocolate is much more dangerous and should never be given to any dogs even if it's just a tiny bit.

You will start to see clinical signs of chocolate poisoning in about a half hour if your dog has ingested enough chocolate. Signs start with vomiting and diarrhea, increased urination and nausea, and can progress to cardiac arrhythmias, and seizures. If you start to see signs, then get them to the vet immediately because it's much easier to fix within two hours, than it is if it's been longer than two hours.

I'm answering this, even though I didn't see it until now, because I'm sick of people saying "oh, don't worry, he just might get diarrhea" or "my dog ate a whole chocolate cake and didn't even get sick" Because chocolate poisoning CAN KILL your dog. And, just because one dog thankfully isn't allergic to it, doesn't mean that MOST dogs aren't allergic to it.

Also, before asking a question on this website, about animal health topics, I would advise you to at least call your veterinarian, because I guarantee that MOST of these people don't know what they're talking about, and if you listened to all of them, there would be a lot more dead dogs in the world.

He's not going to die!! That's such a minute amount of chocolate that I doubt it will even make him sick. On top of that, milk chocolate isn't even as bad as others, so it would take a fair amount to kill a dog. Nevertheless, never feed your dog any chocolate whatsoever. Don't worry about you're dog though! He'll be perfectly fine!

Vikki27 answered Saturday April 1 2006, 3:31 pm:
No he won't die. Dogs aren't mean to eat chocolate because it is bad for them and a lot of it can kill them but one piece won't result in death. My parents dog once ate my entire chocolate advent calender while I was out and he was fine afterwards!!

So please don't worry about it. He will be fine.

chocolate does not kill dogs.

you literally have to throw him in willy wonkas chocolate factory and let him eat it inside out before hell die from it.

chocolate just gives him diarehha. (sp)

No he wont die. Chocolate is bad for dogs, but one little reeses cup won't hurt him =) One time my dog ate, literally two big hershey bars and I was freaking out, but he was fine. Just make sure it doesnt happen alot..but if it does happen again...I'm sure it will be fine.

honu22 answered Friday March 31 2006, 7:44 pm:
No he won't die. He probably won't even get sick. But look for signs, just in case-the first signs of poisoning are vomiting and diarrhea, increased urination, lethargy and depression, and muscle tremors.
So just watch him just in case. But after all, a peanut butter cup consists mostly of..peanut butter.

Alin75 answered Friday March 31 2006, 6:32 pm:
The thing is they say that chocolate can be lethal to dogs but the dosage has to be quite substantial. One of my friends has a border collie kennel (well, sort of anyway), and I have seen those dogs eat chunks of chocolate (again dropped by accident of course) without any trouble at all. I havent seen any of them even get indigestion from it. Of course I have to keep in mind that border collies are really pigs in disguise :).

What your doggy got shouldnt give him anything more than a slight stomach ache (if even that), as far as I know anyway.

DancinCutie08 answered Friday March 31 2006, 4:36 pm:
he should be just fine.. it takes alot of chocolate to kill dogs... the only main thing you have to worry about is his teeth because of the large amount of sugar and even that isnt a big deal. if you are truelly scared get him to eat or drink anything (to help delute the candy in his stomach) and brush his teeth!

ps there is no need to call a vet unless she is vomiting after 48 hours or so of eating the candy. he may vomit or atleast have a stomach ache but its a very minor problem and he will get through it

Your dog is not going to die. He might get a slight tummy ache, but trust me he will be fine. Don't let him keep eating chocolate though

By a slight tummy ache i mean he might lie down more than usual for like an hour. But no, he won't throw up. Dont worry =)

I think your dog will survive eating a peanut butter cup. I wouldn't make a habit of letting him have chocolate because it can truly cause health problems for them, but he'll be alright.

I had a greyhound eat 4 grand kids worth of chocolate Santa's and various other chocolate Christmas candy a few years ago. She came through it fine. The kids learned never to leave their Christmas stockings where the dog could get hold of them.

She left them the healthy apples and oranges though. :)

No, your dog won't die. There's a good chance he won't even be sick. Yeah, chocolate isn't good for dogs, but a peanut butter cup certainly isn't fatal.
