Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi there. Thanks for the question. Let me see if I can help. I have a few questions..
How old is your dog and how big?
How long ago did this happen?
How big were the cookies/ were they baked already or raw?
Thanks and I look forward to helping you.
I need a weight ideally.
And were the chocolate chips dark chocolate, semi sweet or milk chocolate?
It takes a lot of milk chocolate to be toxic for a large dog. Thank you for sending the link that was helpful.
Here are my recommendations.....
1. Try to induce vomiting using hydrogen peroxide. Give 2-3 teaspoons. This should cause vomiting within 5-10 minutes. If it doesnt work the first time you can try again with another 3 teaspoons
2. Watch him closely for signs of toxicity or sickness from eating the cookies ......this includes pacing, panting, increased heart rate, inappetance and ongoing vomiting and diarrhea.
If you see any of these clinical signs please get him to a vet as soon as possible.
I dont think he ingested a toxic dose if he is over 50 lbs but the the fat content of the cookies could still make him sick. Watch him closely.
I hope this helps. Let me kbnow if you have any further questions.
Oh Im sorry to hear that. If you can find some way to get hydrogen peroxide in the next 3 hours you can certainly try the vomiting. If not, Id recommend watching him closely for those signs of illness that I described and try to encourage him to drink water. Take him to the vet if he shows any of those signs of illness.
