Watch the Chocolate

Saturday, March 30, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

Chocolate eggs, Easter bunnies etc are usually part of the Easter holiday but remember, that chocolate is very toxic to dogs and cats. Chocolate is made from the fruit (beans)  of the Cacao tree. Theobromine, a component of chocolate, is a toxic compound in chocolate. Caffeine is also present in chocolate and is also a toxic component, but in much smaller amounts than Theobromine. Dogs are more commonly affected because  their sweet tooth and the ability to find and seek chocolate lying around. Be very careful to keep chocolate away from your dog or cat. Even though cats may not seek out chocolate, they may get into it if it’s left out. Be on the safe side and put all chocolate in a cabinet or refrigerator. Have a great holiday!

Remember, your pets count!
