Panic at the grill

While exploring her backyard, Beretta the Labrador managed to get her collar caught on the family grill. In a panic, she twisted until the collar tightened, cutting off her airway. Beretta was barely conscious when owner Calixte Defay arrived in time to save her pooch.


Pet tip: Breakaway collars help reduce choking hazards, particularly for cats and dogs that spend a significant amount of time outside.
