Please don't be alarmed. While toxic to horses, goats, cattle, and birds, dogs tolerate avocado well. Your poodle might experience a bit of GI distress - inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea from eating such an unusual food but she won't be intoxicated. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

You're quite welcome. I can't set a follow-up in this venue and so would appreciate your returning to our conversation with an update - even after rating - at a time of your choosing.
