On a more serious note, Diesel has asked me to share the file below about toxicity and dogs. At this time of year vets see an influx of patients being poisoned. I’ve seen dogs that ate entire boxes of chocolate roses, lovely chocolate coated macadamia nuts, toxicity from roasted onions, dogs that swallow dropped human medications, burns from sausages stolen before they cooled down and pancreatitis from those trimmings that are too unhealthy for us to eat but seem to commonly be thrown to the dog!
The most common at this time of year, is dogs stealing chocolates from under the Christmas tree. Diesel has been talking to dogs at the park and it seems this year is no different. They’re eyeing them up and waiting for everyone to go to bed before they help themselves to a midnight snack. Let’s make sure the present goes to the person it’s supposed to and keep the chocolates out of reach then we can all enjoy summer and not end up in hospital with our pooches.
