How Easter egg nearly killed Poppy the dog
Dog owners are being warned to keep Easter eggs well out of reach of their pets after a dog from Cardiff ate a chocolate egg and could have died.
Sally Riella came home from work to discover Poppy had devoured the chocolate eggs in her shopping.
As little as 500g (1.1lbs) can prove fatal to a dog of Poppy's size, as they are allergic to a chemical in chocolate called theobromine.
Poppy's now recovered after receiving treatment from the PDSA in Cardiff but her owner spoke to Arwyn Jones and Nelli Bird on BBC Radio Wales about her ordeal.
