Googling "dogs chocolate"....

Why is Chocolate Lethal?
Chocolate contains theobromine. A naturally occurring stimulant found in the
cocoa bean, theobromine increases urination and affects the central nervous
system as well as heart muscle. While amounts vary by type of chocolate,
it's the theobromine that is poisonous to dogs.
