    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Dog ate chocolate cake
    An_221242 posted:
    Has anyone had their dog eat chocolate cake recently? He is acting a little high, but otherwise fine.
    Is there anything I should do to help him, or just let it pass through his system?
    He is drinking alot of water.
    MikkieKim responded:
    CHOCOLATE IS TOXIC TO DOGS. You should keep it well out of reach, and educate yourself as to other toxic foods: grapes, raisins, macadamia nuts, caffeine drinks, alcohol, onions, more. Be sure he drinks a TON of water - keep the bowl full all day and all night, and just deal with extra peeing. If he worsens, take him to the vet immediately.
