Easter eggs, Hot Cross Buns and blossoming flowers are just a few things we get to look forward to this Easter. As the first bank holiday since Christmas and New Year brings fresh Spring air and warmer days, it is important to keep in mind the raised dangers the Easter holiday will bring for our adorable pups.
Chocolate contains substances known as methylxanthines, specifically caffeine and theobromine which are toxic to dogs. Dogs take longer to break down theobromine and depending on your dog’s weight, even small amounts of chocolate can be dangerous.
The darker and bitter the chocolate, the more dangerous it is to dogs.
There are many types of chocolate and they all have different levels of theobromine in them.
