The actress was aware of the issue so could act quickly.

Our Girl star Michelle Keegan has issued a warning to fans over this snack which poses a danger to dogs after she had emergency trip to the vet.

The actress, who has beloved dogs, Phoebe and Pip, took to Instagram to warn fans after dachshund Phoebe had eaten some flapjack.

Michelle, 33, uploaded a snap to her Instagram story and captioned it, "WARNING Please don't feed your dogs raisins, grapes or any foods containing these they're TOXIC to dogs... luckily I knew this and when I saw an empty flapjack wrapper and my dog licking her lips I knew exactly what had happened."

The former Coronation Street star continued, "I immediately rang my vet and the told me to bring her in RIGHT AWAY so they could give her an injection to make her vomit."

Michelle then updated fans with her dog's condition. She posted a snap of the dog as she stroked her head and captioned it, "3 hours later... she's ok, just feeling a little nauseous (and a little sorry for herself).

She warned, "DON'T FEED YOUR DOGS RAISINS!!!" and added, "The most expensive flapjack I've ever bought!!!"

Michelle's dog has a lucky escape and will no doubt be back to being as pampered as ever but no flapjack next time.

Grapes and raisins are toxic to dogs and can lead to acute kidney failure or even death.

Michelle, who is currently filming the third series of Brassic in Lancashire, returned to her Coronation Street roots earlier this week when she paid a visit to the Manchester cobbles while the cast was filming some Christmas specials.

Michelle quit the soap six years ago when her character Tina McIntyre was killed off, but she was delighted to be back for a brief visit.
