Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is***** a vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible.
Could you tell me how much Stripe weighs roughly? And what type of hot chocolate was this?
OK thanks for that. Whilst chocolate (especially coco power) can be toxic to dogs, a dose of at least 5g of pure coco powder would need to be consumed to give any possible toxicity in a dog of his size . I think it is very unlikely that anywhere near that amount would have been ingested from a few licks of spilt hot chocolate.
I hope that puts your mind at rest?
You're welcome. Best wishes
