Q. My 70 lb golden retriever just ate 1.7 ounces of milk chocolate and the foil wrapper. Is any treatment indicated?

A. At this point, just monitor for inappetance, vomiting or diarrhea. That is a low concentration of chocolate since it is milk chocolate. The foil wrapper may be an issue, but since she is a bigger dog, it may pass uneventfully. I would recommend feeding very small frequent meals for the next few days and monitor for the symptoms I listed earlier.
