DOGS EASTER DANGER

April 09, 2017 Bark Gourmet Bake Shop

Chocolates is a no no!!Easter Eggs, chocolate bunnies and other chocolate novelties are the biggest danger of all.  They are tempting treats for dogs and especially when everyone has their feet up after a filling Easter lunch or when they think it is time to join in the egg hunt!   Every year we have cases of chocolate poisoning in the practice and sometimes with the added joy of large amounts of ingested coloured foil that can form a foreign body and cause even more havoc.   Chocolate contains theobromine, which is a stimulant like caffeine and toxic to dogs.  Symptoms include...
