Even the professionals make mistakes sometimes. Meet Zig, one of the vet’s dogs here at A Breed Apart Animal Hospital. Zig managed to scavange some really delicious chocolate and now he is paying the price.

Remember as you prepare your Valentine’s Day treats for your sweeties – be sure to move the chocolate out of reach. And then move it MORE out of reach. You’d be amazed what a motivated dog can manage to get a hold of. We all know accidents happen so if you’re dog manages to get the treat that was meant for someone else, be sure to drop us a call right away. We can let you know if your pet ingested a toxic dose of chocolate and requires veterinary intervention (like poor Zig!) or he’ll be just fine while you’re busy buying more Valentine’s gifts at the last minute. We’ve all been there.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and all our furry friends!
