Oh my!! I use to share my avocado with my dog. Should I be worried? He hasn't had any since probably the end of summer.

I would say no.. But maybe stop for now? I'm still skeptical about it, but better safe than sorry.

stringbeans are perfectly safe to feed in addition to the main meat diet, but all raw veggies need to be pulped or pureed to make them digestible - or they exit pretty much the same way they went in some people feed cooked, canned beans to add bulk without the calories for pets that need to lose weight.
