Q. One of my 6 doxies accidently got a hold of and consumed approx. 1 oz. Dark chocolate (2 squares - not baking type) Should I worry? All are fine now

A. if you are sure it's only about 1 oz she should be fine, although you didn't write her wait I made the calculation according to 12 kg (she is probably less) and the toxicity level is not dangerous. She might experience some vomiting and diarrhea though. Monitor her just in case.
