Lindor truffles are very popular treats. And no wonder! These amazing treats offer an amazing chocolate experience! Who can resist them?

If you have Lindor truffles on the counter or in a candy bowl, you can count on your dog eventually finding them. He may even see you eating these tasty confections and think he’s missing out. So, your fur baby may help himself to a piece of candy. But what happens if a dog eats a Lindor truffle?

Has your dog eaten a Lindor truffle? Are you worried the Lindor truffle will make your dog sick? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We understand it can be scary when your dog eats something like this.

It is strongly recommended to contact a Pet Poison Helpline or your veterinarian.

We’ve gathered information about Lindor truffles and whether they can make a dog sick. Let’s get started!

What are Lindor Truffles?

Lindor truffles are chocolate candies that are made with milk chocolate. The hard outer shell of the candy is made with milk chocolate. The center of the chocolate shell hides a creamy, yummy filling!

Each truffle is individually wrapped with Lindor’s branded packaging. What’s more, the truffles are available in different flavors. And there are at least 30 different flavors for Lindor truffles on the market.

While Lindor truffles are safe for humans (in moderation), what about dogs? Can Lindor truffles make a dog sick?

Lindor Truffles & Dogs

Lindor truffles can be toxic to dogs. However, if your dog has eaten one Lindor truffle, even a small dog, he should be OK. That’s because he’s not eaten enough chocolate to be poisoned.

Another way Lindor truffles can be dangerous for a dog is if he eats the candy’s wrapping. If your dog eats one truffle and its wrapping, chances are he will be OK. However, if your dog eats several truffles and their wrappings, he could become very sick.

The two issues are how many truffles your dog has eaten and if he’s eaten the wrappers, too. A dog would have to eat many truffles to be poisoned by the chocolate. And eating several wrappers can lead to an intestinal blockage, which can be life-threatening if not treated.

Symptoms of Lindor Truffles Ingestion in Dogs

You may notice these symptoms if your dog has eaten Lindor truffles:

Chocolate Toxicity:

Intestinal Vomiting:

If you notice any of these symptoms in your dog, call the vet immediately. This is an emergency.

Treatment of Lindor Truffle Ingestion in Dogs

Treatment will depend on the vet’s diagnosis. For chocolate toxicity, the vet will work to decontaminate your dog’s system by inducing vomiting, using activated charcoal, or other means. They will also treat any other symptoms that may arise.

If your dog has an intestinal obstruction, the vet may need to perform surgery to remove the blockage and repair any damage to your dog’s system.

The prognosis is best for dogs that have prompt treatment after eating Lindor truffles. In the future, it’s best to keep Lindor truffles and all chocolate candies out of your dog’s reach. You’ll both be happier for it!
