Client Informed consent chocolate information

Electronic medical records (EMRs) hold great promise for improving the practice of evidence based medicine by facilitating communication between members of the health care team. The most profound influence of EMRs may lie in their ability to encourage clients' involvement in their own pets care.

Client Informed consent chocolate information

baking chocolate can easily prove toxic to pets but chocolate candy should not be toxic. Chocolate can be part of balanced diet so their is no scientific reason to avoid it. Remember the rule, that even water can be toxic in large doses.

Feed a variety but Everything in moderation when it comes to diet.

If you are worried about your pet getting a toxic chocolate dose you can call a poison control center. Tell them how much your pet weighs, the brand name of the chocolate and how much of it your pet ate. They will run the math and tell you if the amount of chocolate ate might be toxic. Dogs who vomit chocolate candy usually do so because of the amount of fat and other ingredients ingested not because the chocolate was toxic. Here is a toll free poison control number to call 1-800 2823171
