It’s Valentine’s Day!

February 12th 2019


While your pets may be your Valentines this year, don’t forget that chocolate can be very dangerous for them! It contains a molecule called Theobromine (a cousin of caffeine) which is toxic to pets. It’s simple, the darker the chocolate, the more theobromine is present.   Your animal’s weight is something else to consider.  For example, a chocolate bar will not have the same effects on a Lab as it will on a  Chihuahua!  Chocolate is just as dangerous for cats, but they are not as likely to eat it.  If in doubt, talk to your veterinarian.

Happy Valentine’s Day !
