Is there any authoritative resource for what foods are toxic for what animals?

I'm getting conflicting information from around the web.

In this case, I'm specifically interested in rats.

  • Hello and welcome to pets, I think this question might be overly broad, animal dietary requirements very greatly. One source of all toxic foods for all animals seems a bit unrealistic can you narrow this question to one species? – James Jenkins Dec 24 '14 at 11:44

The ASPCA has a useful list of foods to avoid on their website, and as far as I can tell the information is consistent with what I've learned from vets and other reputable sources. Also see their list of poisonous plants. If there's a specific food that you've received conflicting information about, you might want to ask about that specifically so we can give more detailed information.
