Former Coronation Street star Adam Rickitt and his wife Katy Rickitt issued a warning to dog owners on social media last night. The couple, who have been married for six years, had to make a dash to the vets after their beloved pooch Daphne swallowed an entire piece of rope in their family home.
Katy, who makes regular appearances on Good Morning Britain, took to Instagram to speak about their ordeal.
“A word of warning to dog parents…” her post began, in view of her 10,900 followers.
“The last few days have been sheer hell as our little baby Daphne managed to swallow this entire rope would you believe… ”
Her post included a picture of the dog toy alongside a phone to show exactly how big it was.
It also included snaps of her bulldog at home with their other dogs.
“We had no idea… thought it was a virus but thanks to the amazing prudence of Paul @knutsfordvets we got it out in the nick of time,” she continued.
Sharing an update on her beloved pet, the TV star went on to say that she was back home and doing well.
“She’s home now… she’s hungry … and she’s snuggling. But thought I’d put it out there in case, like us, you see the joy they get out of them and leave them as constant play things.
