Chocolate toxicity

Cocoa powder and cooking chocolate are the most toxic forms. A 10-kilogram dog can be seriously affected if it eats a quarter of a 250gm packet of cocoa powder or half of a 250gm block of cooking chocolate. Semi-sweet chocolate and dark chocolate are the next most dangerous forms, with milk chocolate being the least dangerous. A dog needs to eat more than a 250gm block of milk chocolate to be affected. Obviously, the smaller the dog, the less it needs to eat.

10 kilo dog = 26 pounds

250gm = appx 9 oz

appx wt. of chocloate in 2 oz Butterfinger candy bar = .10 oz.

Number of candy bars a dog would have to eat to eat 9 oz of chocolate; 250

I don't know of a 26# dog that can eat 250 candy bars,. nor would they want to........
If 50% of the people did 25% of what they said they were going to do, my life would be 75% easier.
