First things first, dogs should not eat chocolates because it contains a chemical called theobromine which is harmful to dogs. In fact, dark chocolate contains higher levels of theobromine but know that milk chocolate is, in fact, equally dangerous. Other than that, chocolate contains a lot of ingredients like fat, sugar, caffeine and cocoa that a dog鈥檚 body cannot break down. That being said, it also affects their gut, heart and kidneys.If your dog has accidentally eaten chocolate then know that the symptoms usually occur between 12 to 24 hours. If your dog is seeming okay then there is nothing to worry about but it鈥檚 always best to speak to your vet once just to rule out any possibilities. Since your dog has eaten a very small amount of chocolate, you need to make sure that they are not showing symptoms like vomiting, diarrhoea, restlessness, shaking or increased urination. During this time, make sure your dog is calm, with you and has access to water all the time. The effects of consuming chocolate in a dog are mainly affected by the size of the dog and of course the amount of chocolate consumed. To avoid any trouble in future, know that the first step is to consult your vet immediately.Although chocolates can make your dog sick but know that in most cases, it鈥檚 not fatal. For the future, it鈥檚 best to keep troublesome food items out of their reach. Hope your dog feels better soon :)
