Brutus ate an Oreo. Is there anything we should do or look out for?
Brutus got a hold of an Oreo cookie about 4 hours ago and ate it. He is about 45-50 pounds. He hasn't been acting unusual. Will he be okay? Is there anything that I should look out for? I've heard that even a little amount of chocolate can be harmful for a dog, but sometimes it will be okay. I think I'm just over-reacting, but I don't want him to get sick! Thoughts?

Well my old bichon frise got hold of a bag of easter eggs and ate the whole lot and although she was sick, within a day she was back to her bouncy self. I don't think you should have anything to worry about.

A single Orea wouldn't probably hurt even a tiny dog...Don't worry about it!

My dogs have eaten Newman's O's before and nothing has happened to them. I think he'll be fine.

A single Oreo isn't likely to hurt him, but call the vet just in case. You don't need to bring him in, just call. They will tell you what to look out for. Feel better, Brutus!!

If it was just one oreo than you should have nothing to worry about. You should call your vet if he does start acting strange or sick just to be safe.
