Chocolate Poisoning in Dogs

Treatment

 

Your dog should be seen immediately by your veterinarian, but you will need to call your veterinarian first to find out if there is immediate care that you begin with. It is common practice to induce vomiting and control any seizures, should they occur. In the meantime, you will need to keep your dog cool, calm, and in a quiet space.

 

Fluids will be given to keep your dog to keep it hydrated as its condition improves. To avoid any further problems, it should be fed a bland diet for several days.

 

Prevention

 

It is crucial to your pet’s health to keep chocolate products out of their reach, as there is no antidote to chocolate toxicity.
