There has been plenty to talk about while Love is Blind season one has been on Netflix. From the bizarre proposals behind a wall and rows around a swimming pool in Mexico, to the everyday struggles of living together and, of course, the wedding day chaos. However, during the experiment, one clip caught the attention of viewers and has led to backlash against the contestant in question. So could Jessica have really endangered the life of her beloved dog by letting him drink wine?
As all of the couples moved in together, the normal life problems began to take its toll on many of the contestants.
One of them was Mark and Jessica who had a different time throughout the show with the 34-year-old woman continuously up and down about whether she should marry a 24-year-old and if they were actually suited to one another.
However, during a serious conversation between the couple at her dining table, Jessica stopped to let her labrador retriever Payton drink from her glass of red wine.
The clip shocked fans with many taking to Twitter to express their outrage.

One fan said: “How come Jessica just fed her dog alcohol?! Just on episode 6 and I’m shook.”
Another commented: “Can we just talk about how Jessica let her dog drink wine from her glass and then carried on drinking it?!
“I don’t know where to start with that.”
A third user said: “So we’re just gonna ignore Jessica letting a dog drink wine directly out of her glass? (Also giving an animal alcohol wtf).”
Another joked: “I am so happy #LoveIsBlind is over! Now, Jessica’s dog can enter rehab.”
Could Jessica in Love is Blind kill her dog by giving her wine?
According to Dr Jessica May from video vet service FirstVet, giving dogs wine could be a “fatal” mistake.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Dr May said: “Since the recent episodes of Netflix’s ‘Love is Blind’ aired, the internet has been ablaze with discussion around how safe it was for Jessica to share her glass of red with her retriever.
“As a rule, pets of all varieties should never be exposed to alcohol.
“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.
“You should also consider the size of your dog: whilst any alcohol ingestion is problematic, if a small dog drinks a substantial amount of alcohol, they are likely more at risk of alcohol toxicity than a larger breed.”

She continued: “Alcohol consumption can cause confusion and vomiting in dogs, as well as other symptoms, typically experienced by humans that overindulge!
“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.
“If your dog shows any of these symptoms then they should be taken to a vet immediately.”

Since the episode has aired, Jessica has addressed the moment and stated she would never do it again.
Talking to EW, she said: “I definitely have never done that before, I won’t do that again.
“I love my dog more than anything and that was not something I would ever recommend anyone to do.
“I think I was just really uncomfortable. I don’t even remember doing it.
“I don’t know why I did that but it was definitely unnecessary for sure.”
Love is Blind’s reunion show will be available to watch from Thursday, March 5 on Netflix.
