Can My Dog Eat Easter Eggs? We wanted to share some valuable tips with you.

We’ve been busy at Staglers and, as we all know, time flies when you’re having fun! So, amazingly, it’s Easter in a couple of weeks.

It’ll be here before we know it, and our dogs will be rushing out on Easter morning to see if the Easter Bunny has been careless enough to hang around a bit too long. A rabbit-chase first thing is always a cause for celebration. But as we settle down to a feast of chocolate (Easter’s the only day of the year you can have chocolate for breakfast, right?), what about our dogs?

What Can I give my Dog At Easter?

You can give them a nice Easter outfit… yes, there are all sorts of possibilities – rabbit ears (some that light up), an Easter bonnet (with an optional matching tutu), a t-shirt with a chicken on it – the possibilities are endless. But, even if you’re a fan of dressing-up your pup, they can really only wear it for the one day and then it goes into the drawer till next year.

What Chocolate Can I Give My Dog?

Alternatively, you can buy a chocolate Easter egg so the dog doesn’t feel left out, but not human chocolate. Carob Easter Eggs are safe for dogs in moderation. they’re not poisonous like real chocolate.

  • Firstly, carob doesn’t contain caffeine or theobromine (which is toxic for dogs).
  • Secondly, carob has a naturally sweet flavour.
  • Thirdly, in moderation, carob is a good source of fibre for dogs. But remember, but they also have pretty much no nutritional value and don’t last long.

In conclusion, we recommend you MUST check the label before buy Easter Eggs for Dogs.

What is the Alternative to Chocolate for my dog at Easter?

Of course, the long lasting alternative to all of this is a Staglers deer antler dog chews, sustainably harvested when the deer sheds them naturally. Imagine how proud your pooch will be strutting around with their new antler and they’ll still be enjoying it weeks later. And it’s a healthy option…. what’s not to like? Order quickly, though, as Staglers are closing on 6th April for a couple of weeks and we’d hate you to miss out.

Remember, however you decide to mark the day, on no account to feed your dog human chocolate. It really is poisonous and will require a visit to the vet to induce vomiting. Apart from the distress to your dog, vets charge extra at weekends, and extra again at Bank Holidays! So keep your human chocolate well out of reach of your pet, and give them something healthy to chew on instead.

And a very happy Easter to you all.
