Festive Indulgence......

December 1, 2016


Well, if you cannot indulge over the festive period when can you?  Good quality chocolate confectionary, with dark chocolate being my personal favourite, is unavoidable throughout the festive season.


But why would I mention this here? 


Chocolate is actually a poison to our faithful four-legged friends.  It contains two chemicals that can be toxic to pets; theobromine and caffeine.



If you suspect your dog has eaten chocolate you should contact your vet immediately.


The signs of chocolate poisoning may include; 


Vomitting, Diarrhoea, Lethargy, Panting, Hyperactivity, Thirst, Tremors, Convulsions and Increased heart rate.


On a positive note there are 'pet safe' chocolates on the market if you feel your pet is missing out.
