Halloween dangers for dogs and cats

Posted on September 17, 2013 at 11:31 PM
Of all candy, chocolate is one of the most toxic to pets. Over the past year, more than 1,100 calls to Pet Poison Helpline involved exposure to chocolate and 98 percent of them involved dogs. Many dogs are inherently attracted to the smell and taste of chocolate, making it a significant threat. In general, the darker and more bitter the chocolate, the more poisonous it is. The chemicals in chocolate that are dangerous to pets, methylxanthines, are similar to caffeine and more heavily concentrated in the darker varieties. In fact, a 50-pound dog can be sickened by ingesting only one ounce of Baker’s chocolate! On the other hand, it may take up to eight ounces, (half a pound) of milk chocolate to cause poisoning in that same sized dog. White chocolate contains very low amounts of methylxanthine and rarely causes poisoning. To avoid issues, keep Halloween candy well out of the reach of pets at all times. If you think your pet may have ingested chocolate, symptoms to watch for include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, agitation, increased thirst, an elevated heart rate, and in severe cases, seizures.

OMG! this is very informative blog to us as we all don't know that the chocolate could be so dangerous to the pets. I was thinking to taste my cat a chocolate how it feels like to her.

Obliging planning is a victor among the greatest fundamental fields of bearing. The reason in the back of getting ready is to help the grin the properties of driven and unsettled people. Bearing is a major tad of a man's ways of life as it allows the general open to go confronting and settle exasperates of presence.

I don’t act like that, so they’re very ridiculous to your views, and I guess they’re completely wrong. Those that don’t work with the products.
