Welsh vets issue chocolate warning

Vets in Wales are urging pet owners to keep chocolate treats safely out of reach of inquisitive pets this Easter, as fi ndings released by the British Veterinary Association (BVA) reveal that six in ten (61%) companion animal vets in the country saw at least one case of chocolate poisoning over Easter holidays last year.
