18, chocolate is fatal to dogs but depends on the type and amount of chocolate and the size of the dog. Hersheys are milk chocolate which is the least fatal. Dark chocolate is worse, and bakers chocolate is the worst. 28 is incorrect. All chocolate can be fatal. My dog ate a whole bag of Halloween sized snickers, milky way, etc and was perfectly fine. All dogs react differently. It can be extremely fatal. I believe it causes their liver to fail. Guess the vet knows best though. Grapes are also fatal to dogs (and raisins). It takes a fair amount to be fatal but it happens. I think sugarfree gum is also harmful.
@32 my Irish setter ate a whole bag of milk chocolate and didn't react at all. I freaked out when i found him ear deep in the bag and called my vet and that's what ge told me. course he also ate a pan of unraised bread once and it didn't bother him either. maybe it's just setters.
#32 is absolutely correct! The darker the chocolate, the more lethal it is...but you also have to take into consideration the size of the dog with the amount eaten. You can google the peroxide remedy to make a dog vomit. I believe (but please check) that it is 1/2 teaspoon of household peroxide to 1 pound of dog. But, you have to do this when you first notice that they have eaten something bad...and have a roll of paper towels ready. Also, I would call around to different vets. Get a second opinion...always!
bakers chocolate is what you really have to worry about because it's so rich...they shouldn't have chocolate, but plain hersheys milk chocolate shouldn't kill them..my whippets at about 6 months old managed to pry open a tightly shut cabinet and eat a bag of mini. m
onions and garlic can hurt them too, well most dogs o've noticed... if I'm ever cooking I can't let the dogs come in cause my dog has ate a tiny bit of onion on numeros ocasions and had seizures. it's terrifying to watch... butt it's happened with my mom's and my uncles dog, buttt it's like they will have a siezure and than be okay. I talked to the vet and they said there's nothing they can do about it so you just have to let it happen..
@32: Good advice. Unlike the other calls for seeking a second opinion. Large amounts of chocolate solids can be fatal for a dog unless they vomit the chocolate. But, the first sign of chocolate poisoning is vomiting: the dogs treat themselves. If enough stays in the system, then they get jet-propelled diarrhea, and that means a small dose of sedatives for the dog. I'm still waiting for my first case of death by chocolate, but I have had hundreds of pet owners ring in panic over a Hersheys drop eaten by a 100 pound Rottweiler. Now, chocolate coated raisins may be a different kettle of fish
ha! let's see a Chinese wanting to eat that dog! "oh yesh, he look vely big! I eat him!" "sir, he's poisoned..." "what he got?" "chocolate poisoning" "oh sheet, that good filling! I take him now!" aww...well, nevermind...I guess it works out.
I say fake, because a vet would never say "Oh your dog ate chocolate? No big deal, we'll wait awhile." Chocolate is poisonous to dogs, especially in large quantities, so either fake or your vet is an idiot.
No, it depends on the weight of the dog. A bigger dog can eat a shitload of chocolate and be fine while a little dog would drop dead. Plus, it depends on the chocolate. Dark chocolate is much more dangerous than milk chocolate. I know this since my dog easily opens cabinets, drawers, or closes tupperware. He's gotten into chocolate before and was perfectly fine. OP, give your dog some plain bread. That will help absorb some of the chocolate and make it pass easier.
17, sorry but you're an idiot. For all you know you're slowly causing your dogs liver to fail. Dogs can't tell us when something is wrong, so if you are causing a problem you probably won't find out until it's too late. "Its fatal in large amounts so I'll just give him a little for no reason whatsoever" makes zero sense. If you want to give him a treat buy dog snacks. He'd like those better anyway.
idk about that weight thing my aunts dog (a Pomeranian) ate a whole bag of those Dove chocolates and he was fine. probably the same as anything else, as long as it doesn't get into your system you're fine, which is why the vet doesn't care as long as the dog is throwing it up.
