Avocado contains a substance called persin, which can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach upset in dogs.
Cats can also be affected by avocado toxicity, leading to gastrointestinal discomfort and other symptoms.
Persin, found in various parts of the avocado, can cause various health issues in pets if ingested.
While the flesh itself is less toxic, it's best to avoid sharing any part of the avocado with your pets.
Be vigilant for symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and difficulty breathing after avocado consumption.
If you suspect your pet has ingested avocado, contact your veterinarian immediately for guidance and treatment.
Prevent avocado exposure to your pets by keeping avocados and avocado-containing foods out of their reach.
