I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow my speaking with customers by phone in this venue. Please stay in this conversation if you wish. Unless your dog ingested 2.2 ounces of milk chocolate per kilogram of body weight (or 0.7 ounces of dark chocolate per kilogram of body weight) there's no reason for concern. If the biscuit happened to contain the artificial sugar xylitol please let me know. Xylitol is toxic to dogs at doses greater than 75 mg/kg of body weight.
