Welcome to Dogs and Chocolate Help
Chocolate is a sweet treat that many people enjoy. Many pet owners would love to share their chocolate bars with their dogs. However, as much as your dog may enjoy the chocolate bar, it is a serious risk to his health. Children and busy households filled with guests may drop some chocolate onto the floor and right away your dog has eaten it up. Although it may seem harmless at first, in a few short hours, your dog will likely show signs of chocolate poisoning.
Even just a small amount of chocolate may be dangerous to your dog. This depends on the weight and breed, and what kind of chocolate your dog consumed. Different types of chocolate have different levels of danger to your dog. Chocolate poisoning may lead to hyperactivity, muscle spasms, seizures and even cardiac arrest.
If you suspect your dog may have consumed chocolate, always consult your veterinarian, or call animal poison control. They will be able to help you treat your dog as effectively as possible. Never try to treat your dog’s case of chocolate poisoning at home.
