|It is only toxic when the canine consumes his/her weight in chocolate. But like people, reactions very and can not be determined by what has happened to other dogs bc it does contain chemicals that can be potentially harmful to dogs|
|""Chocolate It may be the ultimate feel-good treat, but chocolate has quite the opposite effect on your cat or dog. The chemical methylxantine is toxic to dogs and in high doses can cause abnormal heartbeats, seizures and death. In addition to the breed and size of your pet, chocolate type is also an important factor in the severity of intoxication. Dr. Schoeffler says the richer the chocolate, the higher the methylxantine content. Therefore, milk chocolate accidents are much less severe than cases involving Baker's chocolate.""|
