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

This amount of chocolate wouldn't be considered a toxic dose for your dog; luckily it was milk chocolate which is much less harmful than other kinds of chocolate. He could be in serious trouble if this were dark chocolate, for example.

Other than possible vomiting and/or diarrhea issues, he should be fine, I am happy to tell you.
If they are going to vomit, most dogs will do so fairly soon after ingestion of chocolate. Diarrhea might not be seen for 12-24 hours. If this should happen, then a bland diet of boiled chicken and rice for a day or so should do the trick; the stools should return to normal fairly quickly.

I hope this helps and eases your mind about this concern. Deb
