    If you are worried, ring your vet and ask.

    However I have a story for you.........

    My mothers dog - Sandy(who has since died of old age) was a chocaholic!!

    We had an easter sleepover one year for Miss T - 7 girls, easter egg hunt, giggles etc. After the hunt, we decided to walk to Maccas for dinner (healthy I know) Sandy was locked outside.

    On our return, we found that Sandy had jumped in through the loungeroom window, and consumed EVERY egg in the house. Of course, they were all wrapped! I estimated 1.5 KILOS of chocolate (my eggs, girls eggs, mothers eggs etc) EVERY one was gone!

    Sandy was a bit uncomfortable through the night, with really bad flatulence, and very thirsty. But survived to deposit lovely rainbow coloured dog poo (full of brightly coloured foil) over the next few days!!

    I swear she had a castiron stomach!

    I'm sure your dog will be fine! But as I said, if you are at all worried - you should ring your vet!

    Good Luck!

    It should be ok... will just come out the other end. They may not have eaten it anyway, my dog takes pieces of plastic and stuff and tries to get an extra food off them, in the process tearing it into 100s of pieces but not actually eating it. My dog also eats used tissues (yum).

    I have a Labrador.

    The first few things my dog ate bizarre things I had a fit, now I know just to watch him for signs of blockage.

    Foil, he doesn't like so much...I expect it makes his teeth feel funny (like when we accidently chomp on it) He does, however, like plastic, hair bands, Barbie dolls, paper, tissues, wooden spoons.....
