Avocado is an excellent source of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals that can be beneficial for your dog.
With avocado becoming more popular in our homes, the issue of ” dogs eating avocado?” has come up several times!
Would you give Avocado to your dog?
To be honest, the answer is “yes and no”.
If your dog has to eat avocado, a few thin slices of fresh avocado are recommended.
Avocados are high in fat, with 60% of that being monounsaturated fats, which may help protect against heart disease and reduce blood pressure. They are also rich in potassium, folate, and fiber, all of which are good for the heart and circulatory system.
The main reason for this No as an answer is that avocado has a high fat content.
This is a difficult problem, but the answer is that you should not feed avocado to your dog. Because avocados contain Persin, a fungicidal toxin, we recommend erring on the side of caution. It has been linked to major health difficulties and, in extreme circumstances, death in larger animals like cows and horses. Although dogs are more resistant to Persin than other animals, it can still cause health problems when administered in excessive quantities.
Some of the clinical signs you could watch for if your dog consumes a large amount of avocado includes:
- Stomach Upset
- Heart Failure
You should also be careful that the pit or stone of an avocado can be hazardous to your dog which can cause obstruction in the gut.
Although your dog cannot enjoy a dab of guacamole or a slice of your avocado on toast, there are plenty of safe human foods your pup can enjoy! Check out our helpful suggestions and we will keep you updated.
