Alcohol: Can you give it to your pets?

We usually have a habit of giving whatever we eat to our pets as well. And to be frank, it is an unhealthy habit. The digestive system of our friends is completely different compared to ours and the food items we eat might end up putting them in danger.

For instance, you should never give alcohol to them. Alcoholic beverages and food products can result in vomiting, diarrhoea, decreased coordination, difficulty in breathing and abnormal blood acidity. In some cases it can even lead to comma or death.

If you suspect that your pet has consumed alcohol, it is safe to contact the veterinarian at the earliest.  Avocado, coconut, coconut oil, chocolate, coffee, and caffeine are some other food items that you should keep away from the animals in your home.
