Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Dexter drank a Starbucks hot cocoa Empty

Hey, this may not be super urgent as he seems okay but I thought to be on the safe side I would check with you guys.

When I took my smaller dog on a walk, I guess Dexter my sibe went into my room and found my hot cocoa I had made earlier. It was my mistake leaving it on my side table. I had already had some of it— it was the Starbucks powdered Hot Cocoa, salted caramel flavor. I made it with skim milk. I had the cup next to my bed, and when I came back, he had gotten into it and slurped up a good deal of it, leaving maybe an inch or two at the bottom (so not all of it.) I feel like it is probably fine since he is 50 lb and it's a small cup, plus he doesn't seem to be showing any problems like vomiting or restlessness.

The ingredients listed on the packet are sugar (it's probably mostly sugar, to be honest) and cocoa (processed with alkali, which I know is the issue here, considering the theobromine.) Any concerns I should have? Again, right now he seems to be fine, but I really wanted to make sure. Thank you all.

I wouldn't be terribly concerned, just keep an out out for anything suspicious.

My 1 year old 50 pound girl jumped on the counter and ate 12 chocolate cupcakes (wrappers and all) the other week and aside from an obvious tummy ache, she was fine.

At one point my first husky, Tasha, ate almost an entire bag of Dove milk chocolate. That one scared me but she was fine. Just was super, super hyped up all night. A few days later, the foil came out the other end.
