Easter egg chocolate could poison dogs, charity warns

An animal welfare charity is highlighting the tragic consequences of feeding your dog human chocolate this Easter.

Dogs Trust are advising dog owners to avoid the temptation of sharing Easter Eggs as it can lead to chocolate poisoning.

The organisation say that some foods are fine in moderation for dogs, but that this is definitely not the case with chocolate.

The charity advises people to keep chocolate out of sight of a dog and if your dog displays symptoms like vomiting, excessive thirst or rapid heart rate, bring it to the vet immediately.
