Q. My dog is 17lbs and ate a possiable 6oz of milk chocolate. I have her 3000 + grams of activated charcoal. Will she be okay. She's only vomited 3 times
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. The toxicity can be moderate to severe. Signs to monitor in the next hours are diarrhoea, restleness and hyperactivity, rapid breathing, muscle tension and incoordination. Activated charcoal will help to absorb the toxins. It is hard to tell if she will be ok because that would depend on how much she vomited and when she ate the chocolate. Generally speaking I would recommend to take her to your veterinarian for a check up. I am happy anyway to discuss the problem further if you require in a consultation.
