Dogs and avocado

My dog likes to eat various vegetables and fruit. She likes strange things as for a dog (are all Yorkies like that?) While carrots are ok, avocado (Persea americana) is a forbidden fruit. Daily Puppy online:
Some people foods have no effect on dogs, while others like avocado, can have some adverse reactions to your little guy.
Pet Poison Helpline online stresses the potential consequences of eating an avocado by our furry friend; Common signs to watch for in dogs and cats include: *Vomiting *Diarrhea *Lack of stool production. Those symptoms appear, as avocado contains a toxin called persin. While level of toxicity of avocado in dogs is relatively low, if you suspect that your pet suffers from avocado poisoning, call your vet or Pet Poison Helpline as soon as possible for treatment advice. Avocado is not poisonous to humans. Below photos of an avocado fruit and Pippi portrayed while playing with it. She was closely supervised, do not try this at home ;-)
