Hi guys,

I was wondering if someone could give a quick rundown on how chocolate is useful with respiratory issues?

I would assume it's used as a treatment and not as suppression, but am unsure.

Also is it better to give them milk or dark chocolate and what dosage, how often, etc??

Thanks!!!

Not a problem! Thanks for the post!! :)

I'm thinking dark would be better too, less sugar and all.

I'm just wondering if it should be use as suppression or as treatment during a flare up for example. :?

Dark is best, the darker the better.

A mini-chip amount is about right. :) Once a week maybe.

Dark chocolate contains theobromine which can be used as a bronchodilator when a rat is having a respiratory attack. It does nothing as a preventative and just opens the airways at that time.
