Teddy’s Tales: The Ultimate Healthy Dog Treats

healthy dog treats

“If we can’t give Teddy a chocolate egg for Easter, what shall we give him?” asked my son, earnestly. He had just learned that chocolate does not fall under the category of healthy dog treats. I had relayed a story from our vet about a Yorkie who had recently eaten a potentially fatal dose of dark chocolate (worse for a dog than milk or white chocolate). Luckily the dog vomited straight away and was at Zasman Vet within minutes where, among other things, the vet induced further vomiting. “Fortunately the owners got the dog here straightaway,” says Rodney Zasman. “And the dog vomited within half an hour of eating the chocolate.” Is there anything else that you should do in such an emergency? “It’s important to bring in the wrapper that the chocolate was in and work out approximately how much chocolate was eaten,” says Rodney.
No one wants that kind of drama – chocolate will be kept well away from Teddy at Easter, and at every other time of the year.
As regards my son’s query, Teddy’s Easter doggy delight will consist of his Beautiful Joe’s Ethical Dog Treats. I’ve written about them before and will continue to do so because they are such an excellent product. The natural liver treats inside the retro-chic tin come with a generous feel-good factor, for the people at Beautiful Joe’s match the amount of treats you buy and donate them to an approved canine rescue centre: an all-round Easter treat.
