    When I was younger, Lady ate 8 hollow chocolate eggs. She was completely fine. Don't stress, just keep an eye out

    So we had A LOT of soft poo last night. Not runny...just soft!

    But other than that she was completely fine!

    She did have some apple and watermelon yesterday so that might of contributed to the poo! Haha!

    I would say the apple and watermelon is probably more the reason than 30g of chocolate

    When I first moved to Sydney some *cough*-ty years ago, I was staying with a friend. She got given a huge basket of easter eggs by a client, and the eggs began to disappear. Knowing I am a chocoholic she thought I was eating them - but I wasn't. I came home one day and heard a noise in her bedroom, I knew she wasn't home, but her door was open. I crept up to the door only to find her little toy poodle daintily unwrapping an easter egg and having a feast! I managed to get a quick photo before confiscating the egg. Little sod was vaulting up on to the dinner table, snaffling one and then hiding the foil under my friend's bed!

    Thank goodness she didn't suffer any ill effects.

    Yeh, I knew about that.

    We were chopping up a HUGE fruit salad and a 1/4 of an apple fell on the floor so we chopped into little pieces for her and she chowed it down!

    It takes 500g per kilo of body weight for chocolate to be deadly for dogs (rough calculation, different dogs = different amounts).

    My vet told me that after a foster got hold of a dairy milk bar of hubbies. It was a 50g bar and a 16kg dog.

    It takes an enormous amount of chocolate to be deadly, but it's definitely not the best for tummies if they get hold of less than that. I'll have to double check amounts!
