Chocolate – beware!

We are already getting cases of dogs who have fallen ill because they have started to tuck into the Christmas chocolates!

Please keep chocolate out of reach of your family pet. Chocolate can lead to vomiting, increased heart rate, agitation, seizure, and, occasionally, death. Treatment for chocolate poisoning varies on the amount of time that has passed since it was eaten.

The dog may be given medicine to induce vomiting and activated charcoal to stop further absorption of the toxic substance. The dog may then need fluid therapy and further medication to combat toxic effects on the heart.

Please contact us if you have any concerns.
