Proceed with caution and likely avoid. While avocado is all the rage for human health, it is a little less clear whether it is actually good for your pup. 

It is clear that your dog should never eat the skin or the pit of the avocado. Both can cause internal blockages or choking. 

Avocado contains persin, a fungicidal toxin. Persin can cause illness and even death in animals. The exact amount that is fatal is unknown. It is believed that dogs are more resistant to persin than other animals. But when you look closely at it you have to ask yourself is it worth it to share?

If your dog accidentally eats some avocado, it will likely be fine. If your dog consumes great amounts of avocado, be on watch for signs of toxicity. 

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Lack of appetite
  • Lethargy

If any of these symptoms are present and persistent, contact a licensed vet, available 24/7.
