When educating pet parents and trying to correct misinformation that we’ve been told, sometimes you gotta go big or go home. If I’m not willing to prove it myself, with my dogs, then why should anyone believe me?
So, in an effort to dispel the myths surrounding avocado toxicity in dogs, I’m feeding avocados to my beloved Edison.
I figured the best way to prove my point- that, despite well-meaning yet uninformed internet posts and infographics, California avocados are NOT toxic to your dog- I would offer my muse, my emotional rock, my healing and most perfect boy Edison as a guinea pig. I adore this dog like good people adore their mother, so if I’m willing to include avocados in Edison’s diet, then I must be pretty confident. Trust me, I would never place his health and well-being at risk. Ever.
I’m a veterinary technician with a special interest in holistic health and healthy nutrition. I’ve done tons of reading and research about dog food and healthy ingredients, and I know first-hand how important a healthy diet is for my dogs. I may subsist on a frozen, ultra-processed, food-adjacent diet, but I promise you that Edison and Co. always eat healthy food that helps them stay healthy and ready to prove to the world just how much a deaf dog can accomplish.

Earlier, I wrote about why avocados are not toxic and why they actually offer many health benefits. For the past few weeks, since that writing, Edison has been gulping down the AvoDerm Natural® Revolving Menu® line of food. The other boys here at Deaf Dog Central?? Well, they’re watching from the sidelines, green with envy, sneaking bites when they can.
The Story of a Dog Named Duck!
In addition to containing avocado, a rich source of many important nutrients- high-concentrations of antioxidants, Omega-3 and 6, heart healthy fats, Vitamins A, C, E and B6 to name a few- the AvoDerm Natural Revolving Menu line of dog food is designed for rotational feeding. This aligns perfectly with my approach to achieving and maintaining health with a healthful diet. I’m a rotational feeder and the Revolving Menu line is created with folks like me and dogs like mine.
With AvoDerm Natural® Revolving Menu®, you can easily rotate the following protein sources and other healthy ingredients into your dog’s diet. All of these are grain-free and gluten-free and use garbanzo beans and peas as unique sources of carbohydrates.
- Duck Recipe
- Trout & Pea Recipe
- Turkey Recipe
- Lamb & Sweet Potato
- If you have small dogs, there are three small-breed recipes specifically for you: Lamb, Turkey and Beef
If you are new to rotational feeding, want to try it a new approach to canine health or are looking for easy ways to achieve the benefits of this approach to feeding, then the AvoDerm Natural Revolving Menu might be for you! All varieties in this line are formulated to provide rotating sources of proteins and other nutrients all the while preventing gastrointestinal upset. What do I mean by that? Easy. No risk of diarrhea here if used properly!
Some of the other benefits are:
- It is made here in the USA

- It is made with California avocados, guaranteeing all the health benefits of this very popular and health superfood.

Edison has a few weeks left of his 6-week food trial. Stay tuned for more details about his thoughts. If you a regular reader, you will know that he is NOT shy about expressing his opinions about anything, from food to the location of his water bowl to who is and isn’t allowed on the couch and where.
