Pets at Home is selling special Easter eggs for dogs, cats and rabbits. While humans are tucking into their chocolate eggs over the Easter holidays, dogs will be able enjoy a carob version.
The foil-wrapped treat comes in a box featuring the words ‘waggy Easter’ with a six-pack treat-size version also available. For dogs that like a bit of variety, there’s even a peanut butter and carob flavour version.
The ‘yappy Easter’ egg is for puppies aged over three months and smaller dogs.
Meanwhile, feline fans will be able to give their cat a yoghurt and catnip flavoured Easter egg. Rabbits have their own egg with ‘hoppy Easter’, a dandelion leaf flavour Easter egg. Pets at Home said the egg is also suitable for guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, chinchillas, mice, gerbils and degus.
While chocolate is toxic for dogs, carob is safe because it does not contain substances found in chocolate such as theobromine, caffeine, fromamide, or phenylthlamine.
