Well I am back from vacation, so back to posting! Here is a cool interactive chart I found on Chocolate Toxicity in dogs!
Chocolate is toxic to dogs because it contains theobromine, a compound similar to caffeine. It causes very similar side effects however in the dog much more pronounced such as vomiting, seizures, rapid heart rate and arrythmias and can even induce death in dogs. Now different types of chocolate contain different amounts of theobromine. So this chart shows how much a dog can eat of a specific type of chocolate depending on its weight before becoming a problem.
Very cool thing - Thanks National Geographic!chocolate chart, chocolate toxicity, dog health
