Default Speaking of Halloween - dog invades candy bag!

my daughter left her bag of candy on the floor (WTF?) and near as I can
tell, Roxy (34 lbs) ate 2 Reese peanut butter cups, a medium sized Nestle
Crunch bar, a sucker and a roll of Smarties. Do I need to be worried??

oh, and a small Twix bar. I dread seeing what comes out the other end.
She was pretty careful about unwrapping the chocolate bars (impressive,
actually), but she ate the paper cups the Reese's were in...

That, with the other stuff, is probably not toxic.

Yup. Some dogs handle it well, others don't - which is why
chocolate/theobromine toxicity is sometimes expressed in
relation to an LD50 level, referring to a lethal dose for half
the dogs.

Speaking of....

20 lb dog brought into our clinic today. Owners claim he ate maybe a dozen
Hershey Kisses. Made him vomit... up came *at least* a pound of chocolate if
not more - foil and all! (They're elderly and dearly love him. I think they
optimistically misjudged). He'll be fine. Good thing they saw the missing
treats.

I know someone who lost their small breed dog recently to 2# of M&M's.
Very, very sad.

I had a worrisome night last night and kept checking Roxy's heart rate all
through the night. All is good, though, and my daughter learned a hard
lesson as I was IRATE.

I should make her clean up whatever comes out the other end...

I had 24 small Kit-Kat bars in a basket at the front door for the
trick-or-treaters. These are chocolate covered wafers wrapped in foil
& paper. No kids came as is usual.

Coco (10 year old Standard Poodle) was at the front door while we were
in the bedroom watching TV. She was VERY quiet. When we went out to
see what was going on, there were 4 partially eaten Kit-Kats on the
floor. Another 7 were missing !!!

The reason I am writing is that we now have some beautiful dog poop ..
deep brown, flecked with sparkly silver foil. They would make a great
Christmas tree decoration. Anyone interested??

Fortunately there is not much theobromine in the type of chocolate
used for this type of candy. I am really surprised that she actually
chewed up the foil .. I expected it to come out in large pieces .. she
is not a chewer.

Guess I got lucky .. absolutely no after affects. We have been
putting out candy this way for Halloween for 10 years now and Coco has
never tried to get into the candy basket. This should be a good
lesson for all. You cannot tell from the note above but I was
extremely concerned.

We had to have a rock removed from her stomach surgically when she was
2 years old ($800) so we have been through worse.

Partially eaten? Sacrilege! Did you finish them off for her?

Invalid without pictures.

Wait, on second thought, I'll take your word for it.

It's got to be hard to open up those packages. I wonder if Roxy ate more
than I realize? I was going on the wrapper count.

It's scary indeed. I'm glad both of our girls are okay.

We had to have a rock removed from her stomach surgically when she was
2 years old ($800) so we have been through worse.


Good thing we love these little shits as much as we do. I'm sure the $800
was a good trade for her good health.

by the way, Rocky, thank you for posting this. It gave me some amount of
peace while I watched her diligently in anticipation of rushing her to the
emergency hospital.

I'm SO glad you were right!
