One of our favourite things about Easter is the Easter Egg Hunt! Hiding in the garden dozens of different sized chocolate Easter eggs and bunnies, watching children dash around with delight, playful puppies hot on their heels…..what could go wrong…..
Dogs eating chocolate of course. Chocolate poisoning in dogs is the Australian Animal Poisons Centre’s most common type of phone call around Easter. Symptoms of chocolate poisoning in dogs include: restlessness, hyperactivity, elevated heart rate with dangerous arrhythmias, tremors and seizures. It is always safest to prevent dogs eating chocolate.
To keep Easter safer for dogs, why not try a chocolate-free Easter egg hunt? Below are some poison-free ideas of what you can hide in your garden instead. By choosing Easter crafts options, you could keep the kids entertained for hours.
