I know that foxes are somewhat omnivors, but hot food like chili should not be given to them.
Why, could you cite your source? My dogs love spicy foods and there are many health benefits to peppers. Cayenne pepper is the best but they all have similar propeties.

No onion is toxic and in significant amounts can cause a type of anemia. So best not fed to them, like chocolate. Though yes sometimes fed in small amounts and the dogs are fine, they are dose dependant.

An orange could upset the stomach because of being acidic but isn't toxic and some dogs eat them and have no problems. Just something to be cautious with but not a never feed food.

I've never heard of any toxic issues with peppers so due to being hot would fall into the be cautious category but not the never feed category.

Dunno, common knowledge over here.
Never feed your animals hot food, they tolerate it very badly.

I would not feed any animal hot,spicy foods.
I on the otherhand love them!

Anyway up until the end,I was enjoying reading the info...as I always liked foxes.I don't agree with wild animals as pets for the most part though.However this thread has been quite interesting,up till the end where it has gotten a little confusing!

Although the canine vaccine for rabies is commonly used for "pet" foxes (and I use that term very loosely, as they're not meant to be pets), local regulation will determine whether or not animal control will accept the vaccination. If your fox bites sometimes, and local regulations do not accept it, your fox will be destroyed to be tested for rabies.

But parrots love peppers. They don't have the receptors for the spicy chemical so it doesn't burn them. So it's a bit blanket to say don't feed spicy foods to animals.

My dogs seem to like spicy foods. There's more likely to be a problem with fatty foods causing pancriatitis.

What is spicy food going to cause? Upset stomach, maybe but Cayanne pepper helps upset stomach in studies(dyspepsia). It also helps ulcers because it kills the germs that cause them.

I almost always put some cayenne pepper in my anteaters food because it gives her more energy and helps with circulation and helps guard against bleeding problems(which they are prone to).

it is a missconseption that pets can't have hot things. We are animals, we like hot things.

It got started with some pets not handling things well such as onion as it is not good for many animals, including cats, dogs, reptiles and so on. Too much is harmful to humans as well.

What is worse than hot things is acidic things, such as oranges, lemons, tomatos.
Grapes are bad for cats and lillys are leathil to cats

Dogs can eat things like bell peppers, most animals can actually. But as a rule, Jalapenos should always be avoided. You never know how they will effect your pet, they are not treats and shouldn't be given.
Onions destroy red blood cells in dogs and cats. However, onions are very good for humans for their immunity booster. Onions contain antioxidants that are essential in humans.

Hot peppers don't affect birds the same way, so they're ok for birds.

If you look at the date of the post, you can see how likely you are to get a reply. This thread died two years ago.
If you want answers to your questions, start a new thread.
