A note from the President:

This month’s version of the Purr-esident’s Press is going to be a sad tale of a lesson learned.
Although I am the president of the rescue, most people will tell you that most of my knowledge base is related to cats. I do have dogs of my own though. One of my dogs is a very large healer/boxer mix. George is two years old, super sweet and goofy. You know, the ones that chase their tail constantly, barks at the shadows on the walls and let’s not even start about a laser pointer. He was born in the rescue and we’ve had him since he was a pup.
We usually leave him and one of my other dogs out during the day while my other two are kenneled. This is because he is normally well behaved. We keep our kitchen closed off with baby gates to keep him from getting in the garbage as most dogs are want to do.

One day in July, the gate was not put up and we were out of the house. My son called me when he got home and said he found that George had been in the kitchen and grabbed a full bag of dark chocolate off the counter. He wasn’t sure if both dogs had eaten it or not, but it was completely gone. There was a one-hour time laps that they could have eaten it.
I told him to take them to the vet immediately and I’ll tell you why.
Chocolate is deadly to dogs. It contains a component called theobromine. Although humans can easily metabolize it, dogs process it more slowly allowing it to build to toxic levels. The smaller the dog, the less theobromine needed to cause deadly effects. Different types have different levels of theobromine. Cooking and dark chocolate contain the highest levels, while milk and white have the lowest.
