As for other pets?
Benson notes there's major risk for other types of rodents and reptiles. For example, people with pet rats should stick to commercially-formulated foods, because certain raw or unripe produce like beans, peanuts, potatoes or green bananas can't be metabolized by them.
Got a pet bunny? Not all greens are good for them, including rhubarb leaves, most evergreens and bracken. Rabbits also love to chew, so watch them closely if you let them out of their habitats.
"Be sure they don't decide to snack on dangerous delights, ranging from electrical wires, carpets or rugs -- which could lead to gastrointestinal obstructions -- or stained or painted wood, such as baseboards or furniture, which could lead to chemical or lead poisoning," he said.
Birds also have special considerations based on their breed and often different diary requirements, so check with your vet to see what he or she recommends. Parakeets, for example, are sensitive to scented cleaners, aerosol sprays or non-stick cookware which can give off fumes toxic to birds.
