This is actually {{Downplayed}} as [[RealityEnsues both pets get sick from this]], just not as sick as they should have gotten.]]

** All of this was actually enforced by the original series bible. Not wanting to raise ethical questions about eating Pokémon (which are obviously more sentient than the average animal, as they're capable of understanding speech and following orders) the show was officially supposed to stay away from showing any person or Pokémon eating meat of any kind and avoid implications of a food chain altogether, and thus even Pokemon obviously based on carnivores like Persian, Arbok, and Gyarados are seen eating either generic kibble styles of food, fruit (both real and [[FantasticFruitsAndVegetables made up]]) or just whatever the humans are having. Even then, Pokémon eating only human food is something that's frowned upon in-universe. This element is averted in the games, as many Pokédex's make it clear that Pokémon eat each other and the games have also shown that humans eat Pokémon.
*** The anime does occasionally mention Pokémon preying on one another-- specifically Heatmor's Pokédex entry in the Black/White arc talks about it preying on Durant.

* In ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'' Lucky Luke is often seen asking for a beer for his horse, Jolly Jumper. [[AvertedTrope This is a very good idea]]. Horses often like beer as a treat, and there is nothing in beer horses won't eat of their own volition. Horses are much larger than humans and metabolize alcohol much more efficiently, so there is nothing in a beer that can harm a horse. Adding a splash of beer to water is a common way to ensure that a dehydrated horse drinks.
** Then again, even if that weren't the case, Jolly Jumper would probably get a pass anyway, considering that he fishes, cooks beans, smokes and beats his rider at chess...

** In "Filli Vanilli", Fluttershy is seen giving cheese to mice. In RealLife, that's a good way to introduce them to [[Literature/{{Discworld}} the Grim Squeaker]].
** "Inspiration Manifestation" has an example that's actually serendipitous because it increases the horror of the title spell. Rarity [[DrowningMySorrows drowns her sorrows]] with an ice cream binge she ordinarily would have greatly regretted that night, but the spell had such control over her that it made her completely oblivious.

* In the original ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' movie, Lilo brings Stitch home for the first time, and feeds him coffee. At this point she still thinks he's a regular dog. In real life, one should avoid giving their dogs coffee, because it is poisonous to them. Pets and caffeine simply do not mix. Thank god Stitch is really an alien. He is a little more destructive, but he otherwise has no resulting health problems. Also provides a double whammy of Fridge Brilliance ''and'' Fridge Horror: A five-year-old couldn't be expected to know this... and her older sister was too overwhelmed to realize it and provide proper supervision of Stitch's diet.

** In reality, Lilo would seem to be a poor pet caretaker with regards to Earth animals. Besides the caffeine thing, she also feeds a tropical saltwater fish a peanut butter sandwich on a weekly basis. She also tries to teach Stitch to fetch by spraying him with a water bottle, which one should not do with dogs outside of instances of bad behavior such as biting others. In fact, she might have already been a poor caretaker in-universe as in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'', she says that she once had a goldfish who died. While she doesn't say ''how'' it died, given the above, it's likely that she was responsible for its death.



* ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' has the titular puppies at one point being fed on cow's milk, straight from the source. Most animals are lactose intolerant, and dogs are no exception. The puppies were probably already past the age at which they could digest milk, so in RealLife it would have given them severe diarrhoea and upset stomachs. (A case of ScienceMarchesOn, since the movie came out in 1961.)
