Easter is just around the corner which means there are going to be a lot more hazards for your pet around your house! All that extra food, chocolate, and decorations can actually be very dangerous if your pet gets a hold of them. One of the dangerous things is, obviously, chocolate.
Chocolate of all kinds is toxic to dogs. Whether a dog will show signs of toxicity following ingestion will depend on the type of chocolate, the amount eaten and the weight of the dog. If your dog eats any amount of chocolate, we recommend you contact your family veterinarian.
Chocolate should be stored in a safe place, high enough so that your dog can’t reach it. Chocolate should never be left on counters or on the floor.
