Theobromine is in all Chocolate expecially DARK & BAKERS Chocolate which is toxic to dogs. Cocoa bean shells contain potentially toxic quantities of theobromine a xanthine compound similar in effects to caffeine & theophylline. A dog that ingested a lethal quantity of garden mulch made from cacao bean shells developed severe convulsions & died 17 hours later.
