Dogs Trust is warning people to keep their pets away from chocolate this Easter weekend.

Chocolate is toxic for dogs and the charity has outlined some warning signs to look out for that your pet might have got their paws on some Easter eggs.

The symptoms can include vomiting, diarrhoea, excessive thirst, excitability, drooling, seizures and potential kidney and heart failure.

Dog owners are being advised to contact their vet immediately if they think their pet has eaten any chocolate.
