Isabella ate brownies

I cooked Betty crocker hot chocolate brownie mix and Isabelle ate about 3/4 of it I tried to get her to vomit and she wouldn't. Should I be worried?

Brownie mix itself doesn’t have a very high chocolate content. Did you add chocolate chips.

They weren't special brownies?

I'd be more worried about the fat and sugar making her sick (pancreatitis?).

I'm not that knowledgeable but do know that chocolate in certain quantities can be toxic for dogs. If it were me, I'd call the emergency vet, describe exactly what and how much the dog ate and see what they say. The other thing to do is call the veterinary poison hotline. You should be able to get the phone number through Google.

Hydrogen peroxide will make a dog throw up. You would have to look up the dosage, I have seen it posted on a thread on here at one point. I wouldn't worry too much about the brownie mix, as there is not a lot of real chocolate in the mix. Homemade brownie mix would concern me more. How much does your dog weigh? My old golden once all the little foil eggs from an Easter egg hunt while we were at church. I didn't know about it until I found foil wraps in her poop the next day. The better the quality chocolate, the more you have to worry, and dark chocolate is more dangerous than milk chocolate.

Our Counter Surfer Toro did the exact same thing a few years ago during a snow storm. I did call poison center and emergency vet. They were not too concerned about it. They said milk chocolate in a brownie mix was not that bad. They just told me to watch him. He did not even get sick.

Yesterday, he knocked a nut roll off of the counter that I was making for Christmas. I guess he was trying to help me with my diet..

Our first golden (Amber) ate lots and lots of chocolate wedding cake when she was four months old. Didn't seem to notice.

She just cleaned every plate that was on the floor at our house and there were bunches.

I wouldn't worry. It seem little dogs are more sensitive to chocolate poisoning then goldens.

We were talking about dogs and chocolate today. Years ago, my two sons, about 6 and 8, came and told me that the dog looked healthy. Uh, ok. They then told me that the dog had gotten one of their chocolate chip cookies the day before and they'd been waiting a day for the dog to die or not! They were clearly worried, but weird way to work in out.

I once did the calculation on chocolate. It would take about 2 pounds of chocolate to make my dog sick. (Don't hold me to that. I have no idea where I got the data.)

It's good to be careful, but I wouldn't worry too much. Not a golden (a weimaraner of pretty similar size), my childhood dog, ate an entire fudge frosted chocolate layer cake and a pound of butter one holiday. She had a pretty loose stool for several days, but I think it was more the butter than the chocolate.
