Happy Halloween

With Halloween approaching we aren't the only ones that like chocolate and candy. Our pets like chocolate and candy too!! Chocolate toxicity is most common around holidays when chocolate can be found at every turn. Unfortunatley, dogs do not show any restraint with how much they consume. Chocolate is also toxic to cats, but they often do not eat enough of this delicacy to cause toxicity. Chocolate contains a group of chemicals known as methylxanthines; most specificially, theobramine and caffeine. Dogs and cats cannot tolerate higher levels of these compounds like people can.

Different types of chocolate have varying amounts of these toxic compounds:


  • Milk Chocolate
  • Semi-Sweet (Bittersweet) Chocolate
  • Cocoa Bean Mulch
  • Baking Chocolate
  • Cocoa Powder


White Chocolate contains insignificant amounts of the toxic compounds, and is therefore rarely toxic.


Symptoms of choclate toxicity depends on:

  • What type of chocolate was consumed?
  • How much chocolate was consumed?


Mild Toxicity: vomiting and diarrhea


Moderate Toxicity: vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity and a racing heart rate


Severe Toxicity: seizures and  death



Since chocolate containing foods often contain butter and milk, the high fat content can cause inflammation of the pancreas (Pancreatitis) in dogs. Pancreatitis causes intense abdominal pain; vomiting and can require hospitalization to recover. To keep your pet healthy and out of the emergency room, keep ALL candy, candy wrappers and chocolate containing items in a tightly sealed container far out of reach from your pet.


If your pet has consumed any chocolate, time is of the essence, call us at 281-346-0077 for further instructions.

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
