My one year old Havanese just a half of a neighbors avocado…

Customer Question
My one year old...

My one year old Havanese just a half of a neighbors avocado that fell on our side of the fence. Looks like he chewed it up. The seed skin and fruit. He seems fine so far...

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name?

Buddy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Buddy?

Not really...

This should not be a problem. Avocados are digestible and non-toxic. As long as the skin was chewed, it should pass. If he ate the pit, then I would be worried about an obstruction, but it doesn't sound like that was the case.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

Any signs i should look for?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Gary, Dog Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

If you notice vomiting and lack of appetite, then I would get x-rays to rule out an obstruction. I doubt you'll see any problems.
