With Halloween this weekend and the holiday season just around the corner everyone will have more candy around the house than usual which is an invitation for curious pups to steal a snack. I am using Sparkle and Lilly as an example for what can happen if your dog eats too much chocolate. This scenario is not at all far fetched and in fact I am surprised it has never happened.
Sparkle and Lilly came in to Friendship after breaking into the Halloween candy stash one afternoon. Milk chocolate, which consists mostly of cream and sugar, is generally not a huge concern unless massive amounts are consumed but dark chocolate is another story. Among other treats there was a bag of dark chocolate M&M’s missing and we were not sure how much each dog consumed.
