Guacamole and alcohol – keep them away from your dog!

Friday, January 18, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

There are some foods that your dog should never have and some of them may surprise you! If you give your dog a chip with guacamole on it, there will be severe stomach problems for your best friend. For instance, the reason why guacamole should never be given to your dog is because avocados contain persin which is harmless to humans but can be very toxic to your dog. If you happen to be growing avocados at home, keep your dog away from the plants. Persin is in the leaves, seed and bark as well as the fruit.

Alcohol is also very dangerous for your dog. That’s because alcohol has the same effect on a dog’s liver and brain that it has on humans but it takes far less time to do a lot of damage. Web Md says that just a little can cause vomiting, diarrhea, central nervous system depression, problems with coordination, difficulty breathing, coma, even death, and the smaller the dog, the greater the effect.

Remember, your pets count!
