#12. Valentine's Safety Tips

#1. Chocolate

Remember that chocolate is highly toxic for dogs (and cats) causing diarrhea, hyperactivity and seizures, even death... The darker the chocolate, the more dangerous it is so make sure your Valentine's chocolates are well out of reach...

#2. Alcohol

Never leave any unfinished glasses sitting on your counters, tables or around on the floor as alcohol is poisonous to animals.

#3. Candles

Flickering candles may create a romantic atmosphere but they can easily be toppled by a wagging tail and potentially burn your pet.

#4. Wrappings

If you've swapped pressies with your partner, throw out bows, ribbons and anything small that could present a choking hazard for your dog if he decides to swallow it.
