|Honestly I would suggest you contact ASPCA Poison Control Line ASAP.
Coffee ground ingestion can cause the same signs + symptoms as chocolate toxicity and it takes less coffee to make them sick.
I am going to re-post a section I previously typed in another thread::
"If you are in the US - for any type of potential toxin ingestion I will ALWAYS suggest calling
ASPCA Animal Poison Control - 1-888-426-4435 FIRST - it is associated with a small fee but that fee gives you (and your veterinarian) complete access to the best toxicology resource in the US
I look at the $65 fee as an totally FAIR charge for these potential outcomes:
1 - total peace of mind (not guessing and speculation) that the item will not harm my pet
2 - appropriate at home first aid to minimize the risk to my pet and potentially avoid a more costly trip to the ER
3 - a treatment/medical plan with a high rate of success proven through years of use/modification to ensure the best possible outcome for my pet.
The ASPCA hotline is available 2h/7 and your call is answered directly by a specially trained veterinarian (not support staff or receptionist) with access to a very large computer database with information on all sorts of potential toxins. There is always a BOARD CERTIFIED toxicologist on staff or on call. All of the information provided by this service is based on toxicology and medical/symptomology research (from their own facilities as well as from Vet Schools and Medical Research facilities), literature review, treatment protocols, case-data review (IE every case they consult on - they follow up on to ensure that their recommendations are continuing to minimize health risk) and ASPCA created AnTox™, a powerful, clinical, animal toxicology database system, to identify and characterize toxic effects of substances in animals."
