  • Several couples on the Netflix show “Love Is Blind” got engaged after a few days of chatting but never physically seeing each other in speed-dating “pods.”
  • In the outside world things got even more bizarre with one contestant called Jessica feeding her dog red wine straight from her glass in one episode.
  • Jessica May, the lead vet at FirstVet told Insider alcohol can cause confusion and vomiting in dogs, “as well as other symptoms” such as alcohol poisoning, seizures, heart attacks, and death.

After hours of interrogating her new fiancé she met two weeks ago about their 10-year age gap and gender roles, Jessica, on the Netflix show “Love Is Blind,” fed her Golden Retriever red wine straight out of her glass.

“She loves wine,” she said to Mark – the man she’d said “yes” to, despite having the hots for someone else.

Now we don’t have time to unpack all of that. But we can start with how you should never, ever feed a dog alcohol.

“Whilst we love our pets, and often want to share experiences with them, pets of all varieties should never be exposed to alcohol,” Jessica May, the lead vet at video vet service FirstVet, told Insider.

“If your dog does ingest alcohol, the biggest concern should be the alcohol percentage of the drink they have consumed. As wine has a relatively high alcohol content, it is potentially more dangerous for dogs than other drinks like beer or cider.”

‘Feeding a dog alcohol is actually quite cruel and dangerous’

Alcohol can cause confusion and vomiting in dogs, “as well as other symptoms typically experienced by humans that overindulge,” May said.

“Your dog may appear dazed or lethargic after drinking alcohol, and may also begin panting excessively or develop a high temperature. In extreme cases of alcohol poisoning, dogs may suffer from muscle tremors, seizures or loss of consciousness.”

Dogs should be taken to a vet immediately if they show any of these symptoms, she added.

Jessica is hardly the first to indulge their dog in booze. A lengthy blog post on Puptrait Studio, a dog photography group, says some dogowners find it funny, but warns against it.

“Feeding a dog alcohol is actually quite cruel and dangerous, and feeding a dog beer or booze is a form of animal abuse,” the article says. “Even small amounts of alcohol can trigger life threatening levels of toxicity, including a dangerous condition called metabolic acidosis.”

Metabolic acidosis, also known as alcohol poisoning, can cause damage to body cells, incontinence, slowed heart rate, and even heart attacks, according to PetMD.

‘You shouldn’t ever offer your pet alcohol’

Dogs don’t naturally enjoy alcohol, so it’s unlikely your pet will drink a lot if they find it accidentally, May said.

“That said, accidents happen and alcohol poisoning can be fatal, so it is best to keep glasses of wine out of your pet’s reach to prevent any mishaps,” she said.

“Make it a rule of thumb in your house that drinks should not be kept on the floor, where your thirsty dog could potentially get to them. If there is a spillage of alcohol, it should be cleaned up immediately, and you shouldn’t ever offer your pet alcohol.”

She added you should never offer them alcohol because this signals to them that it would be ok to drink such things, “if a glass were left unguarded on a table, for example.”

But for dog owners who really want their pet to join the party, there’s good news: There are some pet-friendly and alcohol free drinks on the market such as Pawsecco, Woof & Brew dog beer, “if owners want their pet to join in,” May said.

When Jessica lowers her glass to her dog, then brings it back up to her own lips, Mark doesn’t bat an eyelid.

He is too preoccupied trying to convince the woman he’s known for a matter of days to marry him. They discuss their ages (he’s 24, she’s 34). He tells her how mentally stable he is, which Jessica considers a red flag.

In short, don’t give your dog wine. It’s not good for them.

We can’t speak on the success of marrying someone withing a few weeks of meeting them – the finale of “Love Is Blind” hasn’t aired yet. But maybe don’t do that either.
