Many of us are looking forward to the Easter bank holiday weekend – but make sure your dogs enjoy it just as much as you do!
    Easter eggs and hot cross buns go hand-in-hand with Easter, but please do keep these goodies out of the reach of your four-legged friends. Chocolate contains theobromine, which is poisonous to dogs, and even a small amount can be toxic. Likewise, raisins and currants are potentially dangerous.
    Remember, too, that cooked bones can splinter and cause internal damage, or become lodged, so make sure you keep any leftovers from your Sunday dinner out of harm’s way! 
    However, you can still spoil your dog this weekend. If you want to give your pet a titbit or two, there are plenty of doggy treats available. Many canines also love snacks such as cheese, sausage or even carrot – always in moderation, of course!
    If you think your dog has accidentally eaten something he shouldn’t, watch out for signs of illness, including vomiting and diarrhoea, loss of appetite, dehydration, lethargy and general signs that he’s not himself. If you’re concerned about your pet please do seek vet advice as soon as possible.
