Chocolate is Toxic to Your Chihuahua

Chocolate is toxic to all dogs, depending on the kind of chocolate and amount eaten. But remember how small a Chihuahua is, typically 2-6 pounds. I’m a bit bigger than most Chihuahuas, weighing in at almost 10 pounds. Yikes. But I’m big-boned, not fat. That’s what Daddy says, anyway.

Any amount of Chocolate can have devastating effects on your dog, but even a little bit can be poisonous to your Chi because of our size.
