Easter treats can be toxic to pets

ANIMAL charity PDSA has warned that Easter pleasures such as chocolates and daffodils can cause illness and even death among pets.

Last April saw an increase of 150 per cent in the number of inquiries about pets poisoned by chocolate, compared to March.

The most common victims were dogs, treated to chocolate but cases of daffodil poisoning also peak around Easter with most pet owners unaware of their potential danger to animals.

In 2009 the VPIS found that more than one third of all daffodil poisoning inquiries occurred at this time of year.
