Default She ate half a bag of chocolate chip cookies

Okay, so our newest dog, Sasha apparently ate about half a bag of chocolate chip cookies yesterday. We went out to run some errands, and she apparently climbed up on the sofa--which backs to an island in our kitchen. The cookies were on the island, and well,,,she helped herself...we think she ate about a dozen. They did have chocolate chips in them, so I am a little concerned.

She didn't throw up, and is acting normal. Her bm's are normal so far. Should I be overly concerned??
Thanks in advance.

If it was yesterday she would be showing signs like Zulu said. You got lucky on that one. Keep up the counters extra good from now on. Glad it turned out okay.

If you catch it right away you can induce vomiting. Please check Willows sticky on creating a first-aid kit for boxers: medicine-kit-for-boxers-t1164.html


Hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting: 1-3 tsp. every 10 min. until dog vomits.

she only ate half the bag lol... The chocolate here in america does not have a lot of coco in it so it would take ALOT to affect her. My dogs have ate Large bags of M&Ms and it doesnt effect them at all... U gotta worry when it is dark chocolate or european chocolate

lmao... well it makes sense in y my dogs r not phased by eating chocolate... it would take 3-4 pounds to affect them... and thats pure chocolate.
