    Some foods look delicious, but they must not be given to husky dogs (for specific foods that can not be eaten, you can check “several foods that husky dogs can not eat”). One of the most dangerous foods, which many people can’t think of, is “chocolate”! Strange, why can’t husky eat chocolate? Following will introduce the reasons why husky dogs can’t eat chocolate.
    1. Husky can’t eat chocolate. It’s mainly because xiaoha is very sensitive to caffeine in chocolate. Although there are great individual differences, it’s true that some Husky Puppies will be excited when they eat a small amount of chocolate. And chocolate contains a lot of sugar, which is harmful to xiaoha’s health. Caffeine in chocolate is a poison to husky. It can reduce the flow of blood to the brain, leading to heart disease and other deadly diseases. Chocolate poisoning is directly related to the type of chocolate and the size of husky. The purer the chocolate, the smaller the husky pup, and the greater the chance of poisoning. Chocolate contains theobromine, which is the main cause of dog poisoning. Each kilogram of chocolate contains 115 milligrams of theobromine, which may lead to the death of husky. In general, pure chocolate contains about 400 milligrams of theobromine per ounce (29.6 grams). That is to say, a kilogram of Husky Puppies may die if they eat 9 grams of pure chocolate. (most chocolates sold on the market are packed in 60-80g packages), so their chances of poisoning are really great.
    2. The symptoms of chocolate poisoning are vomiting, dysentery, frequent urination, restlessness, hyperactivity, rapid heartbeat and respiration. Serious can also lead to ataxia (unstable walking), cyanosis, arrhythmia, spasm, and even death due to loss of cardiovascular function. The treatment of chocolate poisoning is mainly drug support therapy. When it is serious, bladder catheterization should be carried out to avoid the double absorption of toxin through the urethra mucosa. So, never try to feed husky chocolate! The higher the purity of chocolate caffeine content will be higher, the greater the harm to xiaoha. Toxic dosage: 6-9kg Husky Puppies may be “cured” if they eat 226-340g milk chocolate or 28g dark chocolate.
