Reese’s Puffs & Dogs

Reese’s Puffs can be bad for your dog. This is because they contain cocoa (chocolate). While there’s not a lot of chocolate in this breakfast cereal, it can still make your dog sick. Remember, chocolate is toxic to dogs. Even a small amount can make a dog very sick.

If your dog has eaten a few pieces of the cereal (less than a handful), chances are he will be OK. Some dogs may have some digestive tract issues.

On the other hand, if your dog has eaten a lot of Reese’s Puffs, then he could become very sick.

Symptoms of Reese’s Puffs Ingestion in Dogs

You may notice these symptoms if your dog has eaten a large serving of Reese’s Puffs (a “large serving” will depend on the size and weight of your dog. For example, a large serving will be smaller for a dog small dog, while a large serving will be bigger for a larger dog).

If you notice these or other concerning symptoms in your dog, call the vet immediately. This is an emergency.

The prognosis is best for dogs who receive prompt medical care. These dogs have a very good chance of making a complete recovery!
