We present the first step towards the estimation of finite volume effects in heavy-light meson systems using heavy meson chiral perturbation theory. We demonstrate that these effects can be amplified in both light-quark and heavy-quark mass extrapolations (interpolations) in lattice calculations. As an explicit example, we perform a one-loop calculation for the neutral B meson mixing system and show that finite volume effects, which can be comparable with currently quoted errors, are not negligible in both quenched and partially quenched QCD.
