Springwatch presenter Michaela Strachan took her two dogs Rio and Timmy for a walk near where she lives in South Africa. Much to her dismay, the 55-year-old later discovered her pet pooches were having seizures and “couldn’t stand up”.

The presenter swiftly took her dogs to a vet, who recognised the symptoms as an overdose of Crystal Meth, which is known as Tik in South Africa.

She was later informed that the fort she walked through was where addicts hung out and were known for taking the substance.

Michaela explained: “The dogs must’ve eaten human poo with Tik in it!”

The presenter went on to say she had nursed her dogs through their “hectic trips as they shook, twitched, vomitted and peed”.

After waking up from their trip, they were “confused, disorientated, paranoid and spaced out”.

In an update, she shared a video of her dogs playing on a beach together.

Alongside the post, she commented: “Rio and Timmy on the beach and back to their old selves.

“Tails wagging, noses wet, tongues out and chasing seaweed. Seemingly none the worse for their guest appearance in Breaking Bad!

“Thank you for all your comments and support. Weird experience!!”

Many of Michaela’s 1,134 followers flocked to her post to comment.

One wrote: “Glad to see they have recovered and doing well now.”

“So glad they are both okay xx,” a second added.

In 2019, the BBC star opened up about what is was like having dogs in Cape Town.

When asked of the country was dog friendly like the UK, she told The Paw Post: “Yes, we are because same as the UK, so many people have dogs.

“A lot of restaurants allow dogs, some don’t, obviously, the smarter ones don’t.

“A lot of cafés you’re allowed a dog in.

“There are lots of places that you can have your dog off a lead.

“I get very frustrated if I had to have my dog on the lead all the time, it’s a lot nicer than seeing them run off.”
