15 minutes ago - don't know how much she weighs - a Greyhound

Expert:  Dr. Dan replied 3 years ago.
Assuming that she weighs around 50lb and assuming she ate milk chocolate you need to take no action at all, she'll have mild vomiting and diarrhea and it will pass in 72 hours.

If she is less than 50lb or if the chocolate was dark chocolate, or baking chocolate she is at serious risk of having seizures and heart failure and she needs to be taken to the emergency vet immediately for her to have some activated charcoal administered after inducing vomiting.

I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions.
