Nutella was developed in Alba, Italy in 1944 by Pietro Ferrero in the back of his pastry shop (pictured above). Popular for generations, Nutella is a delicious chocolate and hazelnut spread, a favourite for breakfast in many families.

Here’s an excellent resource – put in your Morkie’s weight and amount of chocolate you think he’s eaten. The results will show you what action to take.
