What to Do if Your Dog Ate Chocolate Chip Cookie
A tiny amount of chocolate chip cookie is unlikely to be fatal to dogs but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Try to get a sense of how much of the chocolate chip cookie your dog ate then call the vet for next steps. If the vet deems the amount of chocolate chip cookie to be too small then he may just request you to watch over your dog carefully for the next several days.
Anything larger, such as a few pieces of chocolate chip cookie, however may require an immediate trip to the emergency vet. Dogs that are affected by chocolate poisoning may exhibit symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea, and an increase in heart rate.
During this time, it’s very important that you stay calm around your dog as any signs of worrying and stress is likely to copy over to your dog as well. People in the US also have the option of calling the Pet Poison Helpline (for a fee) if their usual vet is not available.
