Chocolate and Pets is a Deadly Mix

Chocolate may taste great to humans, but it is deadly for dogs.
When it comes time for treats, many people love chocolate. Some children and unaware adults may try to feed chocolate to their pets, potentially poisoning them in the process.
The Posh Puppy Boutique cares about dogs, and cats too. For that reason, we strong urge you to make sure all forms of chocolate—cookies, candy, etc.—are kept far away from pets.
Why is chocolate poisonous to dogs? Because it contains the stimulant theobromine, which is similar to caffeine. This natural chemical affects the nervous system and the heart. Too much of it can cause muscle tremors, seizures, coma and death.
How can you recognize chocolate poisoning? By your pet vomiting, having diarrhea or being hyperactive. As more of the stimulant is absorbed, your pet will become restless, hyperactive, show twitching muscles, increased urinating or excessive panting.
The amount of chocolate required to cause severe problems in your pet varies depending on the type of chocolate, their size, weight and health and the amount of time between ingestion and treatment.
Different types of chocolate contain varying amounts of theobromine. White chocolate has the least, requiring 250 pounds to poison a 125-pound dog. Milk chocolate is the next most powerful, with 2-3 candy bars enough to poison a 10-pound dog. Sweet cocoa is much more powerful, with only one-sixth of a pound poisoning a 10-pound dog.
Just think how much chocolate could be in an Easter basket or Halloween bag. A pound or two could be enough to kill your pet.
The most deadly form of chocolate is baking chocolate, with a single one-ounce square enough to seriously injure—and possibly kill—a 10-pound dog.
In addition to the type of chocolate, the larger and heavier your dog is, the more chocolate required to harm him or her because it takes longer for the stimulant to be absorbed.
What can you do if you suspect chocolate poisoning? Call your vet immediately. If your vet is not available, contact a 24-hour emergency pet clinic. You can also check with a Poison Control Center such as the National Animal Poison Control Center at 888-426-4435 (your credit card could be charged a $65 consultation fee).
If no one is available, induce vomiting using small quantities of hydrogen peroxide. The suggested dose is mix three percent hydrogen peroxide to water solution and give your dog 1-2 teaspoons for a smaller dog or 3-4 tablespoons for a larger dog, by mouth every 10-15 minutes until your dog vomits.
Next, give your dog an activated charcoal slurry using a product such as Taliban (1 teaspoon for dogs weighing up to 25 pounds, 2 teaspoons for heavier dogs), which will absorb the chocolate. Check with your vet on how to obtain Taliban.

Feed Fifi With a Fashionable Fork

Fashion meets feeding with My Best Friend's Fork.

Feeding your pet can be fun and fashionable, especially when you buy your utensils from the Posh Puppy Boutique.
Whether it’s scooping out wet food or giving your dog a treat, nothing screams “fashion” like our new My Best Friend’s Fork ($25), which comes in three great colors: blue, clear and pink.
Designed just for dogs, these forks are made from stainless steel so they will not bend or break with normal use. The prongs have rounded outside edges while the inner prongs are shorter to fit your dog’s mouth better.
In addition, each fork has a Swarovski crystal embedded in it. These crystals make it easy to keep track of whose fork it is while adding a touch of elegance and class to your dog’s dining experience.
When traveling, consider adding our pink Round Dog Travel Bowls ($105). The latching pink outer carrier—it looks like a small pink purse—holds two stainless steel bowls that be easily removed for cleaning.

Our Fresh Flow Fountain is perfect for multiple pet households.
Keep your dogs and cats hydrated at home by giving them water in a way they will enjoy: with one of our drinking fountains. While dogs and cats will drink from any bowl, they prefer moving water.
Our Fresh Flow Deluxe Fountain ($105) from Drinkwell ® holds one gallon of constantly recirculating water that passes through a charcoal filter. The water spills down the sides into a bowl, letting dogs drink their fill from any angle. It’s especially great for multiple pet households.
The Platinum Pet Fountain ($115) has a 5-inch stream of freshly flowing filtered water. It features a snap-on lid and dishwasher-safe removable water reservoir.
For a great mix of style and functionality, consider buying our Rain Drop Stainless Steel Pet Fountain ($85). It holds 60 ounces of healthy water that is constantly circulated through a charcoal filter. The filter and stainless steel bowl helps protect your pets from bacterial infections as well. The modern raindrop shape is a perfect addition to any room. This design is also available in black or white ceramic ($75).
Express your pet’s inner yin and yang with our Fung Shui Plastic Pet Fountain ($45). This calming design features a black pump and reservoir with a white bowl.
Replacement filters are also available for each of these pet fountains.

Posh Puppy Is Your Plush Toy Headquarters

A dog's lament: So many toys, not enough time. We have hundreds to pick from.

“Let’s play!” If your dog could talk, that is one of the first things he or she would say. Unfortunately, you can’t always play fetch or tug-o-war with them. When that happens, it’s the Posh Puppy Boutique to the rescue.
Your dog wants toys and we have tons of them. Our plush toys come in all styles and types from fashion designer inspired items such as our Small White Chewy Vuiton ($12) to our organic toys like our 100 percent organic knit cotton crochet Rockin Robin ($15).
We have toys inspired by food like our crocheted Blueberry Cupcake ($15) using natural dyes. We have interactive toys to engage your dog’s mind and their body, such as the Dog Worker Interactive Puzzle ($79).
For multiple dog households, consider a toy two can share: one of our many loopies. The brown Dog Talking Loopie ($16) has a barking sound chip that will entertain your dog for hours. It also has arms that are perfect for two dogs to grab on and play toss the toy or tug-o-war.
We also have a huge selection of fun plush toys. Your dogs will have a gas playing with Mr. Turtell ($10).
Do you know someone whose dog has a birthday soon? Give them a Sushi Pups toy assortment. Our 5-piece assortment ($29) looks like pieces of sushi, but isn’t.
Some dogs are tough on plush toys. Some young ones are chewers. Let these dogs massage their gums—and keep your furniture intact—by giving them a rubber or latex chew toy. The Nylabone Puppy Teething Pacifiers ($12) are perfect for young dogs both in color and shape. For something a bit more modern, consider our Red Rugged Tuffy ® Skulls ($12), which come in extra-small and medium sizes.
Our jack and ball combo will keep your dog occupied.
Another great option is our Jack and Ball Combo ($24), which is sure to occupy every dog.
Don’t worry if one of the above toys isn’t perfect for your pooch: we have hundreds of other toy choices, too.
