Our lab had a feast on hershey kisses and wrappers while we were out. Now, 24 hours later she is hardly walking and has no appetite. What should we do for her??

Toxic is highly toxic to dogs, not to mention the tinfoil can be quite a hazard! Take her to the vet immediately.

Chocolate is highly toxic to dogs.

To the vet now!

Scold her later for not inviting us to the chocolate party.

Scold yourself for putting the candy in her reach..then get over it! ( We all learn this way..)

Do as the vet say's and all will be okay. Stop kicking yourself too!

Rarely does a dog die from one encounter with chocolate....although when I was a kid I thought i was going bite the big hershey after too much candy on Holloween.

He/she was still online when we posted so hopefully he whipped off to the vet's office at the speed of light!
