Default Dogs & Chocolate & How Much is Deadly

We've all heard the horror stories about dogs and chocolate, but rarely anything other than "it's poison to dogs." Finally, I ran across an article that explains it and will dispel some of the panic if we find out our dogs have snuck off with the last piece of that Hershey bar or a stolen bite of brownie.

Yes, great article!
Basically the way I understand it is baking chocolate is what has the most volume of the toxic theobromine ingredient. Basic milk chocolate doesn't contain as much so it isn't as threathening in small amounts. Nevertheless, I would always discourage my dogs from accquiring a taste for cholcolate.

Here are some other links for further information I got from NewsNation:

One of my friends when I was younger one a 10lb candy bar from a raffle or something on those lines. Her black lab got into it once and ate a lot of the chocolate but didn't have any side effects. But I take caution with my pooch

Milk chocolate isn't a real reason for panic with a larger dog, but it is best to avoid it.

That reminds me of my mom's dog. He's a Chihuahua/Pug Mix weirdest looking dog ever, but so very cute *lol* Anyways, my mom and I went shopping and for the longest time we always had a little candy dish full of hersey kisses. Bebe was about 5 years old when this happened, we got home from grocery shopping, and came in the house to a scene of bebe sitting in the middle of tin foil from the hersey kisses and all the chocokate was gone. We almost had a heart attack. That dog didn't get sick or anything, like it didn't phase him at all. Thank god it didn't, my mom and I were so worried. Candy dishes get pick up way high now, even tho our other one was on a table we still don't know how he got up there.

omg do I have a story to tell.
When me and my sister stilled lived at home she had a toy poodle named Ralph lol. Ralph was a sneaky old boy and one day we all left the house a rare event to go out to dinner for Valentines day. My sister had a heart shaped box of Hershey Kisses that she left on her bed. When we got home that evening there was Ralph laying in the middle of the bed after finnishing the last kiss with wrappers all around him on the bed and floor. This little dog actually unwrapped each and every kiss lol. He was fine the next day which was surprising to us. But i still don't take any chances and always worry a bit when one of my dogs get some but it always turns out fine. Not saying that thats how it will always be.

When Mickey, the Toy Terrier, was still a pup (she could sit in the palm of my Dad's hand) she managed to get up on the coffee table and completely devour an entire dish of Hershey's Kisses, after carefully unwrapping them, of course! She lived to be over 16 years old and was a terror until the night she died, peacefully in her sleep curled up between Purdue and Morgan.

It may have been the only peaceful thing she did in her whole long life . . .

My dog HATES chocolate! He will eat a little taste of chocolate pudding but he doesn't really like it. He grabbed some M&M's off our counter and had them in his mouth like two seconds and spit them out with this disgusted look on his face like "what was that?!?" The look on his face was priceless!
