This chart is pretty cool. Tells you how much of each kind of chocolate is lethal to your dog, depending on dog's size.

Thanks for the link! Dylan would have to scarf down alot of chocolate...His grandfather stole an entire bag of milky ways off of a table one Holloween. He had never done anything like that! But.....he um....eliminated all the bars, still wrapped! Thankfully, never had a single problem!

One of my mom's pugs ate an entire 18 count box of kudos bars...the chocolate chip covered in chocolate kind. She got really bloated and acted pathetic for a few days, but got over it.

I wouldn't recommend that for any other dogs...this thing eats drywall, carpet, dirt, metal, wood etc etc and has never had a problem in her life. She's quite odd.

Cool chart!
This explains why our dear (now departed) Rosie, at 150 pounds, survived eating our son's Halloween candy. (She did barf all over the place, too.)

Excellent chart...and actually there are quite a few people out there who don't even know chocolate is dangerous for dogs! A good idea to have a syringe & some hydrogen peroxide handy...it makes them throw up almost immediately, so if your dog accidentally gets into some chocolate & you catch it quickly, you can avoid most of the toxic effects. Liquid charcoal (also called "toxiban" or "universal antidote") is also a great thing to have for a host of different toxic ingestions...I still definitely recommend seeing your vet, (IV fluids will be necessary in addition to the toxiban to flush out & bring the heart rate back to a safe level) but for people who have to drive a ways to get to their vet, it's definitely a good idea...just call the vet first & let them know the dog's weight so they can tell you the proper dosage to administer!
