Hiding Easter Eggs and letting your dog find them can be serious to their health
When a dog eats chocolate, the dog can get very sick. This depends on the type of chocolate, the amount eaten and the size of the dog. Symptoms like vomiting and diarrhoea in mild cases, but more serious symptoms like tremors, seizures, coma and death can occur. To calculate the toxicity of the chocolate:
Chocolate contains two toxic substances for dogs: theobromine and caffeine. If too much chocolate is ingested then the increased stimulus to the central nervous system can cause an increase in blood pressure, irregular heart rhythms and possibly even death!
