Q. I have a yorkshire Terrier. She is about 8 pounds And She ate chocolate, about7 pieces Snack size. Can she be in danger. Please let me know???

Answered By

A. White chocolate is not dangerous to dogs. Milk chocolate is dangerous when eaten in large amounts. Dark chocolate and cocoa powder are very dangerous and often require prompt treatment. To get a better advise you should know what type of chocolate she had and how many grams. You can check the expected problems on several on line chocolate intoxication calculators, for example http://www.sarc.com.au/chocolate-toxicity-calculator/
