A. Over time small amounts of chocolate could potentially cause organ malfunction. Chocolate is still considered a toxin to pets so it can be seen as a low dose toxin slowly given over an extended period of time. Try other safe treats like peanut butter, milk bones or even small amounts of yogurt. All healthy options for your pet and not known toxins.
