Pet chocolate poisoning reports increase around Halloween

Darker chocolate is more toxic

DENVER - The week of Halloween is very busy for the folks at the Pet Poison Helpline. This is when they see an increase in calls of pets accidentally ingesting chocolate and candy.

The petMD Chocolate Toxicity Meter will let you know how much theobromine and caffeine your dog has consumed and the symptoms that may follow.

The darker the chocolate the more toxic it is, according to  Dr. Dean Vicksman from the  Evans East Animal Hospital.
