Avocados may be beloved by millennials, but they are not beloved by pets. An avocado’s pit is enormous and evolved to be eaten by giant sloths, so it could do serious damage to a dog or cat if swallowed. Plus the avocado’s high-fat content could give your pet pancreatitis. Avocadon’t feed this to your pet!
On top of that, avocados also have a toxin called persin, which tends to be mildly poisonous for dogs and cats but can be deadly to birds, horses, cows, goats, sheep, and other animals. So, never feed a bird or hooved animal an avocado, no matter how trendy the toast.
