dogs and chocolate
I know chocolate is poison to dogs and it can cause digestion problems or, worst case scenario, kill them. One of the puggles knocked chocolate chip cookies off the counter, and I'm not sure how many he ate. If the chocolate were to harm him, how long before I see symptoms? He seems perfectly okay as of my typing this, and the cookie incident was maybe fifteen minutes ago.

Phone your vet immediately.
Depending on the type of chocolate it can take only a few grams to seriously harm a dog as small as a puggle and unfortunately it can be too late by the time symptoms show, the damage can be done. If you phone your vet they will be able to advise you what is best including if necessary going to the surgery for treatment to prevent the harm before it occurs.

I dont want to scare and hopefully everything will be OK but you do really need a vets advice on this.

RE: dogs and chocolate
Call the vet immediately without wasting any more time.Usually, symptoms occur from 2-12 hours after your dog has consumed chocolate and it will vary depending on the amount of chocolate your dog has consumed. Chocolate mainly affects the central nervous system, liver, kidneys and heart of your dog. Read this, may be this article might help you more http://www.petsworld.in/blog/important-h...olate.html

RE: dogs and chocolate
My vet says, depending upon their breed and health, dogs that consume dark chocolate and chocolates with nuts show symptoms quite late, whereby it becomes difficult to treat them successfully. All in all, chocolates are bad for dogs. Regardless of how much has been consumed, one needs to call a vet immediately. Most would ask you to come in for an examination and half the problems solved if diagnosis shows anything. Better still, take your dog to the vet's the moment you find your dog has consumed any.

RE: dogs and chocolate
I have read that chocolate is bad for dogs, and since the vets say that, I am sure that it must be true. This is something that has come out not that long ago; but it was not known at the time I was growing up back in the 1950's.
I can't remember when I first read this; but I think it was in the last 10-20 years.
Before that, people always gave chocolate to their dogs.
We didn't give them very much chocolate, but all dogs loved sharing a candy bar with their owner; and pretty much, the dog owners like sharing their Hersheys bar or Three Musketeers with their dogs, too.

Chipper's very favorite was M&M's. Any time we had those, he would sit right there and wait for his turn for an M&M.
Of course, eventually, I read that chocolate was not good for a dog, and stopped giving him any M&M's; but I still share bites of my chocolate muffin when I happen to have one along with my breakfast coffee.
Maybe it is because people never gave their dogs very much chocolate that it was fine all of those years. I don't know.
I just know that everyone did, and our dogs didn't ever get sick from it.

RE: dogs and chocolate
Excessive consumption of chocolate by a dog can cause diarrhea, panting, excessive urination, excessive thrust, abnormal heart rhythm, seizures, vomiting, muscle twitching, hyperactive behavior, digestive problems, change in hear beat, and even death.
You should immediately contact your vet doctor.
If your dog has consumed chocolate, you can look for the ways to make your dog vomit. Vomiting will help to remove the chocolate which has been ingested by your dog.
Offer your dog as much water as possible
