Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Welcome! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your questions.
Can you please tell me how many ounces the egg was and how much Smudge weighs?
Smudge weighs 12 kilos and the egg was about 100 grams. He ate about 75 grams of the egg. It was milk chocolate
OK please give me a few moments to convert that information. I will be right back!
You are in luck, the amount ingested was 13.9 mg/kg of theobromide. This means that you are likely seeing the worst of it, he may have some loose stool for a few days but mild signs typically start at 20 mg/kg and he is will below that amount
I would consider reducing his meals by 25% for a few days and supplementing him with 1/4 cup white rice cooked to help settle his stomach and firm up his stools but the more mild signs of vomiting, diarrhea, increased water intake are very common and should resolve within the first 24 hours
Please let me know if I can assist with any additional questions today
Thank you that is very reassuring
You are very welcome :)
