Posted on: June 09 2014
We are a nation of animal lovers, from dogs to cats, we can't get enough of our furry friends. But we've all been there, whilst nibbling away on a biscuit, you're greeted by your beloved pet begging to get in on the tasty action. You stand firm. Maybe even turn your back to the pestering pooch, but soon enough your biscuit is surrendered.
However, it's not just sweet treats we're willing to share with our four legged friends, according to recent research conducted by Direct Line Pet Insurance, half of all pet owners sheepishly admit to feeding their dogs fast food - witth men the worst culprits. Some of us have even had to take our pet to the vets for ingesting the wrong types of food!
Consequently, one in five of us worry about whether we are feeding our pets the right things. Foods we may normally associate with good health for humans, such as dark chocolate, raisins, grapes, or onions, are potentially lethal to dogs. Unless you know the facts, giving a pet your leftovers isn't always the kindest idea.
Preventative healthcare is very important to Direct Line Pet Insurance, who have put together a series of treat or snack recipe videos to show you exactly what you should and shouldn't feed your pets. With veterinary surgeon and animal nutritionist Marc Abraham on hand to create some cordon-bleu for your canines, come forth healthy and happy pets! Find out more about what Direct Line Pet Insurance can offer by visiting www.directline.com/pet-insurance/health .
To celebrate your new found knowledge of all things nutritious, Direct Line Pet Insurance have teamed up with Muddy Paws to offer you £50 of vouchers.
To be in with a chance of winning just answer the following question:
Q: According to the video, why can chocolate be fatal to dogs?
1) It contains theobromine
2) It contains milk
3) It produces serotonin
