Sozzled spaniels

Just yesterday we reported that a pair of naughty spaniels were in the doghouse with their owners after getting tipsy on Advocaat at their home in Gateshead.

As reported by the BBC, booze hounds Martha and Oscar needed to be treated by the vet after drinking Advocaat knocked over by black-and-white spaniel Brecon.

Martha was found “staggering and swaying” in the garden by owners Fiona and Anthony Robson, while Oscar looked “drowsy and depressed” after the incident.

The rebellious pair were taken to Prince Bishop Veterinary Hospital in Consett where they were made to be sick and vet Emma Hindson fed them activated charcoal to absorb the remaining alcohol.

“Alcohol affects pets in the same way it does humans, so Oscar and Martha were quite tiddly when they arrived,” Hindson said.

“This was an unfortunate accident and their owner did the right thing by bringing them in immediately for treatment. Everything turned out fine and they could go home,” she added.
