Last time i bought some chocolate from the vet for my dog.. They r sugar free .. But some people told me that it's unhealthy for him even if they r made for dogs .. I shouldn't feed him chocolate .. Any ideas?

Basic rule of thumb is that chocolate is toxic to dogs. Baking chocolate and dark chocolate has more of the toxic ingredient than milk chocolate, but we tell people to not give any.

It's probably Carob, not chocolate. I doubt any vet would sell chocolate.

NEVER feed chocolate to cats and dogs - theobromine poisoning can result - and it needs to be treated by a vet ASAP! :eek:

I actually couldn't believe they would sell a dog treat containing chocolate, but this does contain cocoa powder, and I think that is probably not good for dogs. I wonder why they would do that?
