The PETA study also found that the 10 most potentially harmful treats commonly fed to pets are fruit, leftovers, milk, fat trimmings, bones, raw meat, chocolate, sugary foods, alcohol and salt. What's scarier? Almost 40 percent said they didn't know chocolate can be toxic to animals and nearly a third said they gave their pets milk, which can cause stomach upsets and diarrhea.
In the wake of this report, WebVet wanted to refresh your memory about which foods are toxic and dangerous to pets:
Avocados contain a toxin known as persin. Persin is found in various parts of the avocado and avocado trees (eg, leaves, rind, etc). This toxin is known mostly to cause vomiting and diarrhea. Birds and small pets seem most affected by the negative side effects of consuming avocado.
Not just beer…all alcohol.
