Q. Dog ate junior mints

A. Junior Mints are covered in dark chocolate, which is the kind most toxic to dogs. The extent of damage will depend on how big your dog is and how many he ate. I would call the Pet Poison Helpline at 1-800-213-6680 and give them the specific information. They will be able to help you.
