Chocolate Toxic to Dogs

Naughty Frankie the Irish terrier managed to steal 180g of Chocolate.

Chocolate poisoning affects the heart, central nervous system and kidneys. Symptoms of dogs eating chocolate usually occur between four and 24 hours after your dog has eaten chocolate. The effect and signs of chocolate poisoning in dogs depends on the amount eaten and the size of the breed.

Freddie was given a drug to induce vomiting emptying his stomach contents, he was then fed activated charcoal. Activated charcoal can help by preventing the theobromine (the “toxic” component of chocolate) from getting absorbed by the dog’s body.

If your pet eats chocolate please call the surgery immediately make sure you you keep the wrapper so we are able to see the chocolate strength.

DO NOT FEED ACTIVATED CHARCOAL AT HOME.
