Tsokolate Nakalalason Sa Mga Aso

Friday, April 20, 2012 Posted by Glenn Von Posadas

Taong 2011, lol, ito na naman tayo, may date na naman. Anyway, going on, yea, year 2011, me and my assistant (marvin cabuang) went to Arjay's cousin's house. Her, I mean his cousin is cute. Her name is Louise. HAHAHA. Louise is not a dog. Nandun kami para magcover ng debut, tapos kumain muna then rekta na sa sasakyan. At ng pauwi na kami, binigyan kami ng pagkain, with chocolate cake. Yum. Ay ewan, hindi ko na matandaan, tapos nung akmang ipapakain ko na sa aso nila Arjay yung chocolate cake, Marvin and Him interrupted. Nakakalason daw. I wondered why.

Ito pala ang sagot:

Humans and Dogs are different in many ways. Here's the fact: It turns out that, for dogs, a chemical in chocolate called theobromine is the source of the problem. Theobromine is similar to caffeine. According to this page, theobromine is toxic to a dog when it ingests between 100 and 150 milligrams per kilogram of body weight.

Different types of chocolate contain different amounts of theobromine: It would take 20 ounces of milk chocolate to kill a 20-pound dog, but only 2 ounces of baker's chocolate or 6 ounces of semisweet chocolate. It is not that hard for a dog to get into something like an Easter basket full of chocolate eggs and bunnies and gobble up a pound or two of chocolate. If the dog is small, that could be deadly.
It turns out that chocolate poisoning is actually not as unusual as it sounds. For a human being, caffeine is toxic at levels of 150 milligrams per kilogram of body weight (see this page). T



hat's the same as for dogs! Humans generally weigh a lot more than dogs, but small children can get into trouble with caffeine or chocolate if they consume too much of it. Infants are especially vulnerable because they don't eliminate caffeine from the bloodstream nearly as quickly as adults.
