Shortly after the third birthday of Prince George on 22, July and his splash photo shoot, one of the amazing pictures caught the eyes of the public. The picture of Prince George feeding his pet spaniel Lupo an ice cream. This attracted both positive and negative reactions as not everyone was happy about it.
Animal welfare organizations have expressed concerns about a treat that may contain both dairy items, which are tough on dogs digestive tracts, and chocolate, which is highly toxic for our canine friends.
The RSPCA, the animal welfare charity, warned other children not to follow Prince George’s example:
“It is lovely that Prince George is trying to help keep his family dog, Lupo, cool in these high temperatures,” the organization’s statement said.
“We would advise people to be cautious when giving their dogs food meant for human consumption as some items, like chocolate, can be highly toxic to dogs and dairy items can be difficult for them to digest.
“Instead of ice-cream we would suggest making an ice lolly from pet-friendly ingredients. Making these can be really fun for children and the end product is both safe and enjoyable for dogs.”
