Make mine chocolate - but not if you are a cat or a dog!

As Easter approaches, please remember that ordinary chocolate is poisonous to dogs, because it contains a stimulant called theobromine, which we can detoxify safely, but carnivores like dogs and cats cannot. Special dog chocolate is safe for pets because it contains little or no actual cocoa bean extracts.

You also need to be careful about using cocoa bean husks as garden mulch if your dog likes to pick up stuff and chew it.
