Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and I'll do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry that Bridie is having this problem. I do have a few additional question to ask about her condition first:

1. How long ago did she eat the chocolate?
2. Do you know how much she ate?
3. How much does she weigh?
4. Any other signs such as trembline or hyperactivity or racing heart rate (if you can tell)?
