Dogs can not eat avocado!
No matter how you enjoy avocado as a treat, you should never give it to your dog. Avocado contains a toxic substance called persin. It may be harmless to humans who aren’t allergic to avocado but it can be fatal for your dog. It is not just the fruit itself that is dangerous, the bark, leaves and as well as the seeds are considered to be dangerous.
Persin in some cases can cause the heart failure and inflammation of the mammary glands. Some dogs also experienced vomiting after consuming a large amount of avocado. It is not just the persin that can be fatal to your dog. The large seed of avocado can cause airway obstruction or indigestion which can lead to your dog’s death if not treated immediately
Some dog owners do not believe in the possible threat of avocado. They also believe that it is not the avocado itself that causes the problem but other factors such as the amount it is given to certain dogs and the way it is served. Some of them even adds avocado in their dog’s diet. Most vets would disagree with this kind of practice. Just to be safe, it would be best to avoid giving avocado to your dogs.
