Well, I am officially shunned to the DOG HOUSE – Mom is not at all happy with my actions today. She baked some tasty brownies for the family and I decided to take it upon myself to have a treat too! Luckily I got my paws on one sitting on the table and not the whole pan from the stove because she told me my tummy wasn’t going to feel O.K. and boy is she right.
As soon as she found me outside, you know, doing my thing… she hopped onto www.petmd.com to check out the dog chocolate toxicity meter and make sure I didn’t need to go to the vet. Thank goodness I don’t – I really do not want my temperature taken until I feel better.
Click here to see the Dog Chocolate Toxicity Meter.
Using this chocolate toxicity tool is really easy. Simply enter in your dogs weight, type of chocolate consumed and the amount. It then tells you what to expect as far as behavior and if you need to take your dog to the vet. As always, if your gut tells you to take your pooch in because he isn’t acting like himself, please do!
Now for my fellow pooch friends, please, please stay away from the baked goodies – I had enough for all of us today!
