December 24th, 2007

DogI’d heard that chocolate wasn’t good for dogs, but I never realized it was quite so devastating.

    Hi Chad

    Yes, it’s a pretty serious issue for dog lovers. Obviously, as a chemist, I was well aware of this problem before our vet pointed it out. All the South American plants we relish as stimulants (coffee, cocoa, coca) produce their various compounds to ward off pests and it just so happens that we’ve evolved enzymes to deal with them, whereas the dog hasn’t.

    That anti-spam question is a killer at this time of night, after a few glasses of wine, a heavy New Year party and a stomach bug!

    All the best for 2008 by the way!
