People food can really harm you pet`s health. Even though we want to share everything with them and they look at as with those adorable puppy eyes, giving them people food can do much harm for them
Here is a list of people foods that are unsafe and unfit for animal consumption. Many of these are very harmful and also toxic for pets.
Avocado is very unhealthy for birds, rabbits, donkeys, horses, sheep and goats too. The biggest concern is fоr cardiovascular damage and death in birds. Avocados contain a toxin called Persin, which can cause diarrhea, vomiting, and heart problems.
Chocolate and Coffee
Both coffee and chocolate contain substances which is called methylxanthines. They can be found in cacao seeds and also in the fruit of the plant which is used to make coffee. When eaten by your pets, methylxanthines can cause serious vomiting and diarrhea. It can cause excessive thirst and urination, hyperactivity, abnormal heart rhythm, tremors, seizures and even death in some cases. Dark chocolate is a little bit more dangerous than milk chocolate. White chocolate has the lowest levels of methylxanthines, but it can still cause a lot of problems for you pet.
Milk and Dairy
While milk and dairy which are everyday people food is not that hazardous for your pet, you should really avoid it. Nothing good can come out of it. Our pets do not possess significant amounts of lactase (this is the enzyme that breaks down lactose in milk), milk and other dairy products can cause them diarrhea or some digestive problems.
