** "Rarity Investigates!": Some horses actually do like broccoli as a treat, but equestrians know not to set it out for them as part of a buffet. A plateful of broccoli like the one Rainbow Dash pigs out on would give a horse painful (though usually not life-threatening) gas colic.
** The ponies also eat chocolate throughout the series.

** In "Winter Wrap Up", she feeds said ferrets what appears to be a salad. Ferrets are carnivores.
** In "The Ticket Master", Twilight orders a daffodil and daisy sandwich from a restaurant. Ponies have difficulty digesting daffodils, and daisies can actually be toxic to them.
** In one episode, Angel Bunny attempts to bribe Fluttershy with a salad - which includes a tomato. Tomatoes are poisonous to ponies.

* The episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' with all the greyhound puppies had them hiding the newborn pups all over the room like Easter eggs for some reason. DO NOT do this with real puppies, especially newborns.

* People seem to be under the impression that it's perfectly good, or perhaps beneficial, for an animal that was born and/or grew up in captivity to be released into the wild. This is a terrible idea for several reasons. For one, many animal, especially more intelligent ones like mammals and birds, need to be taught how to fend for themselves, and more importantly, how to interact with wild members of own kind. This takes very specialized training, and even then this is imperfect as we may not know everything about their behavior. It's also a terrible idea to release animals into an environment where they don't belong, as this has disastrous consequences.

**Potientially [[JustifiedTrope justified]], though still a bad idea in real life, given Mouse is no ordinary dog, capable of walking off buckshot and posing a threat to [[TheFairFolk Fae]].

** The same holds true for other livestock such as sheep, goats, cattle or pigs. As nice as it would be to cuddle them like a cat or a dog, they don't like their personal space invaded and interpret it as being attacked by a predator.Most horses will also not respond well to being hugged, although there are a few exceptions, so always ask the owner first.

* In ''GingaNagareboshiGin'', [[BadassGrandpa Gohei Takeda]] trains the protagonist, Gin, to be a bearhound by beating him with a piece of wood, feeding him only raw bear meat (which is mentioned to stink so terrible that even ''adult dogs'' cower at the smell of it) and forcing him to get pieces of aforementioned meat from the bottom of a large basin filled with water. Did we mention that this TrainingFromHell started when Gin was still supposed to be ''nursed by his mother''? While he did grow up into a through-and-through {{Badass}}, making a puppy go through stuff like that in real life would definitely not end half as well.

* ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'', in which [[LonelyRichKid Jenny]] feeds ice cream to her cat, provides the page image. A few licks from an ice cream cone, or a little bit of milk is not going to affect a cat that much, but it's still not a good idea given the sugar and other things ice cream is loaded up with, especially since Oliver is a kitten and their digestive systems are not as resilient as an adult cat's (as any cat owner or animal shelter worker who's worked with kittens for long enough can tell you).
** To say nothing of the Cocoa Krispies in whatever mess she concocts for him earlier.

* This seems to be used for humor in ''WesternAnimation/FoodFight'. The FunnyAnimal dog likes both raisins and chocolate. He's not technically real, being an "ike" (a food mascot), so no damage is done.

* Ferrets are very frequently mistaken for wild animals due to their scruffy, weasel appearance. While there are species such as the Black Footed Ferret, pet ferrets are no more wild than a Siberian Husky is a wolf. They're domestic animals who can't survive on their own however are frequently depicted in fiction as being able to. Even a few real world laws against ferrets mistake them for exotic pets.
