Hair of the Dog – a cautionary tale….

Two naughty Clumber Spaniels got themselves into a spin literally when they thought they’d try a little Advocaat whilst their owners were at work.

Their owners arrived home and were horrified to find two staggering and swaying spaniels. Their third dog, a cocker spaniel, knocked the bottle over but he was wise and stayed on the wagon, leaving his playmates to get themselves into deep trouble by lapping up the whole bottle.  Their fast acting owners rushed the dogs to their local vet who immediately induced vomiting and then fed them activated charcoal to absorb any remaining alcohol.

Both dogs are fine now but it is a cautionary tale to ensure all alcohol is stored well away from prying paws.
