Over the years there has been misinformation and confusion regarding avocado safety for dogs and cats.
Avocados are generally safe for dogs and cats as long as you don’t feed them the pit which can be a choking hazard.
The confusion arises from the fact that avocados contain a substance called persin.
Persin is a substance found in the avocado pit, skin, bark, and leaves of certain varieties. Persin is harmful to some animals ?
birds, rabbits, horses, and goats, just to name a few. However, there have been no reported cases of avocado poisoning in dogs and cats.
As Dr. Jean Dodds, DVM, noted on her Pet Health Resource Blog, "Those of you whose canine and feline companions enjoy the occasional avocado indulgence can breathe a sigh of relief: persin does not adversely affect dogs or cats."
