Protecting your dogs from Easter dangers
The Easter holidays are upon us and we all want to have fun with our family – and that includes our four legged family members.
We participate in all kinds of outdoor activities – egg hunts and walks in the countryside, to family get-togethers, meals and the inevitable mountain of chocolate eggs (or is that just us?). But on a more serious note.we need to be aware of the risks to our dogs and other pets.
Marc Abraham, the amazing campaigning vet who is responsible for Lucy’s Law and who, we are very proud to say, will be at Just Dogs Live 2019 with some new things to see (more of that later). In an article on his website he identifies the number one hazard at Easter being chocolate.
Poisonous to all dogs, and the darker/bitter the more deadly, theobromine, which is present in all chocolate, may cause a number of symptoms if ingested, for example – panting, hyperactivity, diarrhoea, vomiting, elevated or abnormal heart rates, or even seizures.
