How Much Chocolate is Too Much?

You just found out your dog scarfed down the your prized Chocolate Easter Bunny that you were saving to treat yourself with later.

Is Fido safe? Do you need to see the emergency vet? How much chocolate is too much?

We recently ran across a nifty little web page which contains a chocolate toxicity meter. You enter in how much your dog weighs, click on type of chocolate eaten and finally enter the amount eaten.

The meter comes back and tells you just how worried you need to be.

Feedback from our clients

  • "I just moved here, and had appointments for my 2 dogs with Dr Gary. He is amazing with my dogs. They both were relaxed, which they have never been during vet visits! Dr Gary and his staff obviously know animals well, and gave me great suggestions for some behavior problems I was having. His suggestions have worked wonders. I am so happy to have found this vet, as I know my 2 dogs will always have the best of care with Dr Gary and his staff! Highly recommend!"
