Avocado, a forbidden fruit

The avocado is undoubtedly the most toxic fruit that we can give to our dog. Inside it contains persina, a fungicidal substance found in the leaves, in the seed and in the fruit itself. In addition, avocado has a high amount of vegetable shortening and toxins.

In view of the spontaneous consumption of avocado by our dog we can expect to experience vomiting, stomach pain and even pancreatitis. In addition, if it is a regular or excessive intake of this fruit forbidden to dogs can result in deficiencies of the pulmonary system or affect the heart.


Although many people talk about the great toxicity of citrus fruits, the reality is that they are not especially harmful to the animal. But that is not why it becomes a suitable fruit for your dog. Its high sugar content contributes to obesity.

Due to excessive consumption of this type of fruit, the dog may develop gastrointestinal problems such as vomiting, stomach pain and diarrhea.

Although not serious, these health problems are not beneficial to your pet. Therefore, avoid giving your dog citrus fruit and offer him food that he may like more.


The onions , the garlic , the leek garlic and chives are toxic vegetables for your dog. Offering them daily or excessively in just one intake can result in a serious problem since they contain thiosulfate that can destroy red blood cells creating a high risk of anemia.


Another harmful and toxic fruit for your dog are the grapes. Without being clear on the component that makes them intolerable to your body, we can say that they cause damage to the liver and / or kidneys. As a consequence of eating a lot of grapes our pet may suffer from kidney failure.

The raw potatoes , the leaves and stems have a high content of solanine which is not only toxic to dogs, it is also for humans. In this way and for it to become a product fit for consumption we can boil it, with that will be enough so that we can offer our dog. Remember that the identical as the raw yam should also not be offered.

Raisins and seeds

Other toxic foods for our pet are the raisins and seeds . It is important to highlight the seeds or lumps of fruits like peach, apricot, apricot, cherries or plums because they have a high cyanide content that the dog can not digest.

Anyway, remember that you can give the fruit itself, always taking the seeds or the stone because it is food rich in fiber, which in small doses is healthy.
