Cocoa bean mulch and a dog

Asked June 8, 2016, 9:58 PM EDT

I was just going to use cocoa bean mulch on my fairy garden when my dog came over and started to eat it. Is this bad for him since chocolate is very bad for dogs? Thank you for your time!

Apparently there is some truth to the danger of cocoa bean mulch eaten by pets. http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/cocoamulch.asp

Since your dog is known to be attracted to this mulch, you would be wise to avoid it, but we are not experts on this subject. You should talk to your vet.
