Bark for A Cause

19 Nov

 

Most of us love chocolate… it gives us comfort and cheers us up when we’re down. But do you know that chocolates are toxic to our dogs?

Chocolate contains theobromine, which is toxic to dogs. Dogs can’t metabolize theobromine as effectively as humans. This allows it to build up in their system until it reaches toxic levels of concentration. This may lead to a variety of health problems including death due to cardiac arrest.

“Bark for A Cause” is made of Carob (the brown half). Carob is a substitute for chocolate. So now both our dogs and us can enjoy the happiness of chocolates/carobs without worriers!

Snuffy definitely loves the taste of carob and soy milk. You can tell that by her extreme attentiveness when she knows that I have the treats in my hand!
