Can dogs eat avocado? No, dogs should not eat avocado. There seems to be a lot of contradictory information regarding this but there is a lot to understand regarding avocados.
Avocados are trendy and healthy. For people. But we often eat it as a portion of other things, such as guacamole. We also never eat the pit, skin, or leaves of avocados and nor should your dog. All of those contain persin which is a fungicidal toxin and is toxic to dogs and can cause vomiting and diarrhea. So is the fleshy, yummy part okay for your dog then? No, even though that portion doesn’t have as much persin as the rest of the plant it is still too much for dogs to handle.
Make sure everyone in your household is educated about the dangers of feeding dogs avocados and other dangerous food to your dog.
