3. Chocolate Gold Coins
Each Hanukkah, children eagerly wait to receive coin-shaped chocolates wrapped in gold or silver colored foil (called "Hanukkah gelt"). Careless placement of these tasty treats could permit a curious pet to taste the precious bounty.
As chocolate contains theobromine and caffeine (both methylxanthine stimulants), a dog’s consumption of the faux denomination can cause severe toxicity. Also, the metallic foil wrapper, sugar, and fat all can cause gastrointestinal problems, including vomiting, diarrhea, and pancreatitis.
