    Default Do you know this dog food???

    A friend of mine gave me this Gerodog bag yesterday. It looks like chocolate treats for dogs. I don't know this food and all I know about chocolate and dogs is that this is an evil combo.




    Does anybody know anything about Gerodog food? Should I feed this stuff to my dog? I feel like going to the shop and ask for a change.

    As it's made for dogs I don't see the problem?

    If in doubt chuck it out

    It is, but you can get choc for dogs. It's not lethal.

    Very funny... very funny Actually it is lethal. You feed your dogs whatever you like, in the meantime I had the money back.

    I think it's fine, it's made for dogs, I doubt it's "real" chocolate (the kind we eat)

    I thought dogs were allergic to dark chocolate only?

    My neighbor's dog ate one of those huge Hershey's milk chocolate bars last year. It's the one that is the size of about 5 regular bars.The dog didn't get sick, throw up, shit, nothing. She is still running around healthy as can be.

    My friends Standard Poodles(2) got into her Christmas Hershey's Kisses and had bad diarrhea all over their white carpet-while the were out at a party. It sounded unpleasant.

    Usually "chocolate" for dogs is actually carob. The package should be marked as such.

    It's not the same chocolate we eat, it's made for dogs. Like a chocolate flavor.

    Now, that said:
    My mom's Siberian Husky devoured an entire bag of Hershey's miniatures that she got off of the counter. Ate the wrappings and all. Never got sick. No vomit, no pooh, nada. However, the next day she stole a bottle of Mylanta out of my mom's purse and we found the bottle with all the teeth marks and the top half chewed off with Mylanta oozing out.

    It's not lethal, because it's made FOR DOGS. You can get easter eggs for dogs in pet shops and all sorts these days.

    Chocolate for humans and chocolate FOR DOGS is not one and the same.

    I don't get what was funny about what McJag said

    Our family black lab Duke ate my Easter basket 3 years in a row, eating all my reese's eggs, snickers and practically everything else chocolate leaving only the fruity candies. He never got sick and I finally learned to put my basket away.

    No, I didn't want to and I am glad I didn't. I see no reason for chucking something out simply 'cause don't know it.
    I felt like asking because if there's some food my bog never had, then it doesn't mean it's bad food. And asking for opinions is the point of forums!

    For the chocolate thing, I obviously know it's a specifically made choc for dogs! OMG!! It's not bad for pets, yes maybe, but the question is not the choc but Gerodog!
    My dog still needs some extra care as he comes from the shelter and has specific needs right now so his doc suggested to avoid this kind of treats.

    Typical Lab!!! Josie, my black lab, ate a pack of chocolate cookies with chocolate cream filling!! She's also eaten chocolate bars, cake, etc. She does not like jelly beans though...or jello
