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.
