MADE In Chelsea’s Binky Felstead was left heartbroken when her dog Pedro was hit by a “vile” van driver who “left him for dead.”
The 32-year-old had to issue a trigger warning to her fans as she described seeing the dog’s “lifeless body” and showed his horrific head injuries, which scared her daughter India, five.
Posting to Instagram, Binky shared a series of photos of Pedro, two, who had a protective cone around his neck and multiple stitches on his head.
Pedro is seen cuddling with Binky in one photo and gingerly recovering from his injuries in another video.
“*TRIGGERING *,” Binky started the post.
“A pretty terrifying few hours as our Pedro was hit by a van …( who drove off and left him for dead yesterday without stopping to see if he was okay.. )”
She added: “Yesterday we thought we’d lost Pedro, as he chased another dog across a road and was hit by a speeding van.
“I got a call from Max saying he probably wouldn’t make it and I had to urgently come to the vets and say goodbye.

“I don’t think I’ve seen anything like what I saw & of course we were in pieces.”
Binky went on to tell fans “how grateful” her family was to the vets who saved Pedro’s life before lashing out at the unknown van driver.
“To the van driver who hit Pedro, you are vile, immoral & I feel sick to my stomach you’ve got away with this,” she fumed.
“Well, that’s of course until karma gets you …. Maybe you drove off and left an animal for dead because you were speeding? You should feel ashamed!”
Binky finished saying she was thankful Pedro “amazingly” survived and was home “getting lots of cuddles”.
