It depends on the size of the dog and type of chocolate. Milk chocolate will make smaller breeds very ill in small doses but larger breeds are able to consume small amounts without illness. Bakers chocolate, which is a purer form of chocolate will kill small breeds in small doses and make even larger breeds very sick.
I know a lady who feeds her dog chocolate and also let's it chew on her cigarette butts after she is done smoking it and it is literally addicted to cigarettes as crazy as that sounds. Alot of its hair has fallen out and it walks sideways kinda. I wouldn't recommend giving your dog or pet anything that is not made for it unless you want it to end up like this poor dog.
It s chemical in all chocolate. Yes it will kill them. The toxin can also stay in their system for a long time. Of course smaller dogs will be affected quicker. Google this or ask your local vet. I would not recommend you feeding any to your dog.
Depends on the dog. My friends dogs have ate a little and got sick but once my dog ate either a whole batch of brownies or a whole one of those triple chocolate cakes from Costco and didn't get sick at all..
Yes. Even if some answers say only in large quantities and stuff, never give chocolate to animals. It's the same as horses with apple seeds.They can eat them, but not humans. Humans CAN eat apple seeds but they're highly poisonnous; chocolate is the same as poison for animals.

milk or white chocolate in very small amounts will just give your dog diarrhea, but if they eat dark chocolate it could kill them. The better the chocolate is for humans, the worse it is for dogs! BTW never just give your dog chocolate as a treat!
A 60-lb husky can eat 2 lbs of See's Mixed Chocolates with no ill-effects... I know this for a fact ;-) However the smaller the dog, the less it takes to make them sick, and dark or Baker's chocolate is worse than white. Don't give your dog chocolate on purpose, and if he gets into it on accident, find out how much he ate and call the vet to decide whether he needs to have his stomach pumped
