Pets at Home launches Easter treats for furry friends

While many of us love tucking into chocolate eggs over the Easter weekend, chocolate is dangerous for most pets so it’s important that it is kept out of reach from our furry friends.

However, to make sure that pets can be part of the celebrations with the rest of the family Pets at Home has launched a range of tasty treats for dogs, cats and small animals.

The range includes pet-friendly Easter eggs made from carob for dogs, yoghurt for cats and dandelion leaves for small animals, as well as a host of pet chews and biscuits.

Karen Heskin, Head of Pets at Pets at Home, said: “Chocolate contains theobromine and caffeine, both of which can be toxic to pets. Even very small amounts can be dangerous because dogs, cats and other pets simply can’t digest these ingredients like we can, so it’s important to make sure you keep chocolate designed for humans well away from them.

“We know that pets are very much part of the family, so our pet-friendly treat range means they won’t be left out and can tuck into Easter snacks together along with everyone else. It’s worth remembering though, just like with any other treat, Easter goodies should be given in moderation as part of your pet’s daily calorie intake and as a reward for good behaviour.”

The full range is available in-store and online now:
