Its nearly that time of year again when big heart-shaped boxes of chocolates take up space in our houses. But be warned - your pet may not appreciate these gifts as much as you do.
Chocolate is toxic to dogs and cats and should be kept out of reach at all times. This includes innocuous looking wrappers and boxes as it doesn't take much to make your fur-pal unwell.
If you're hanging out with your pet this Valentines Day, make sure you can share your sweet treats by giving them healthy alternatives, such as carrots, which have the added benefit of being good for their teeth.
Long walks on the beach and snuggling by a fire doesn't have to just be for humans, so bring your beloved fur-pal along but steer clear of the chocolate for a fuss-free Valentine's day!
