Thank you Kendal - I managed to get hold of my vet who said that if he hadn't been sick by now he has probably already digested it. I have to ring back tonight if he becomes sick or lethargic / unresponsive. Hopefully he will be fine

Can't believe it.... Billy has eaten one of the kids Easter eggs!!!

Will he be ok? Is there anything I should or shouldn't do?

Personally I would phone your vet and inform them asap. Work out how much he had eaten versus his size. Human chocolate is poisonous to dogs and you may need to ensure you give him (on vets' advise) something to line his stomach as he is likely to have the runs and be sick. The vet would give him an injection to make him sick - and I would ensure he has access to water until you get proper advise.

Good Luck and wishing Billy a speedy recovery.

I thought it had to be quite alot of chocolate ..

However since having dogs my kids don't even drop a little crumb of chocolate on the floor .. as I warned them it would make our lovely dogs poorly.. what a wicked mummy I am, well I have kids who are really tidy eater.. so a result really :) :)

Thanks Stephen and Jo.
Yes the vets were very reassuring and said that although he ate the whole egg - both halves, there is not much chocolate in Cadbury milk chocolate! He is running around just his usual self so hopefully he will be fine.
