Will avocados hurt dogs?
Avocado leaves, fruit, seeds and bark may contain a toxic principle known as persin.
"Avocado ingestion can cause stomach upset in some dogs.
The pit is the biggest worry, if ingested it can cause an obstruction.
We do not see heart or reproductive problems in dogs and cats that we do in other kinds of animals."
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
