Chocolate toxicosis

Chocolate toxicosis is a common problem in dogs. The signs can range from a simple stomach upset to life-threatening problems, depending on how much chocolate is ingested. Dark chocolate and baking chocolate are more toxic than white chocolate. Cacao bean mulch used in gardens can also cause chocolate toxicosis if a large enough amount is eaten.
