    Sugarless gum and candy contain xylitol, which is poisonous to dogs and cats.

    Wait, I thought she hid Michael’s candy so Elizabeth couldn’t get it.

    There are some children from whom nothing can be hidden! Elly looks worried about Farley, probably because he had issues just a few months ago from eating bad food.

    If the dog shouldn’t eat it; most likely you shouldn’t either.

    It says in Bman73’s article that the theobromine in chocolate can cause diarreah and vomiting in dogs. No wonder Ellie isn’t happy.

    Chocolate is not nearly as bad for dogs as raisins. Our Lab once ate almost a pound of baseball sale chocolate a son had left in reach without ill effect, but a single box of raisins can destroy the kidneys of even a fairly large dog. Something in the grapes….

    for carnivores, chocolate is equivalent to concentrated methamphetamine. you can put a cat or dog into tachycardia with it. lethal.

    We had a German Shepherd/Lab mix who ate almost an entire bag of Hershey kisses with no ill effect. My son was taking them out of the wrappers and putting the candy in a bowl as I was making peanut blossom cookies. I had to answer the door for a man from the carpet cleaning company, and my son followed us upstairs to see what the guy was going to do, and when we came back into the kitchen I saw that the candy bowl was empty. I asked my son what he did with the candy. He was mystified, and then I noticed that the bowl was wet, and the dog was running his tongue all over his face and had chocolate breath. I called the vet, but the dog had no issues with the candy consumption.
