Can Dogs Eat Chocolate?

Caffeine and theobromine are two examples of the methylxanthines that are present in chocolate. These substances

have a well-known impact on the heart and muscles. A dog's body cannot metabolize the compounds

in chocolate the same way that human bodies can. This causes heightened sensitivity to the harmful

effects of the substances. The quantity and kind of chocolate consumed are crucial considerations

since different forms of chocolate contain different amounts of caffeine and theobromine, which can all be 

dangerous to dogs. In general, the most hazardous chocolate for dogs is that which is darker and more

bitter. This is so because, compared to other forms of chocolate, dark chocolate has a higher concentration of theobromine per ounce.
