* In one ''ComicStrip/PhoebeAndHerUnicorn'' comic, Phoebe is feeding bread to ducks while pointing out that they're more interested in the bread she's feeding them than the rainbow she's sitting on. Readers quickly pointed out that bread is bad for ducks, which caused Dana to release a followup strip three years later where Phoebe points this out to Marigold.

** 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 subverted in the games, as many Pokédex's make it clear that eat each other and the games have also shown that humans eat Pokémon.

** The Pokemon creatures may not be exactly like animals, but Ash has been shown feeding Pikachu ice cream and chocolate at least once in the anime. To say nothing of the memetic episode where Pikachu fell in love with ketchup.
** Nowadays, not only are Pokemon shown to have their own food, but different breeds and temperaments like different flavors.
** In an odd inverse, humans in more recent seasons have been shown eating things prepared with Berries normally eaten by Pokemon. Though nothing really states that berries are really bad for humans apart from intense tastes.

* Makoto from ''Anime/{{Free}}'' received two Goldfish at a carnival years ago. He loved them however he kept them in a fishbowl. They died, though it's presumed the writers were going for the "Goldfish have short lifespans" myth rather than "Mako mistreated his fish".

* In ''Anime/YokaiWatch'', Jibanyan, a cat Yo-kai, is seen frequently eating and enjoying chocolate. Despite the fact that chocolate is very bad for cats (and most animals), cats normally don't even like it since they can't taste sweetness... It's a good thing Jibanyan is already dead. It's also {{Lampshaded}} in one of the games.

* Nat Geo Wild's version of the ''Series/PuppyBowl'', the ''Fish Bowl'', involves various fish swimming around in a bowl. As mentioned, putting fish in bowls is typically a bad idea. There is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwY2Z4IH9M8 a lot of care]] taken into the welfare of the fish off-screen, and it is just a temporary enclosure rather than a permanent one.



* In a lot of early ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' strips, Charlie Brown occasionally gave Snoopy treats that dogs should never have, like potato chips, cookies, and chocolate. This tended to taper off in later years, but there were a few modern strips where Charlie Brown let him have pizza. The cheese would've made the small dog very sick.

* ''VideoGame/FarmingSimulator 17'': One could go hog-wild pointing out inaccuracies in the depiction of husbandry, but let's not have a cow. Even though it does have livestock, and it does call itself a ''[[SimulationGame simulator]]'', it's still [[MST3KMantra just a game]]. One silly oversight stands out, however. The developers bothered to program your chickens to shut up and go to sleep when the sun is down, but they snooze ''outside'' their very prominent coop. Chickens always sleep indoors when they can, and it would have been trivial to have them disappear until dawn.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': The family tree published at the end of Chapter 12 shows a couple of cats from the JustBeforeTheEnd prologue with lines diverging from their portraits, suggesting that they had kittens and possibly have very distant descendants in the main story's era. Both of those cats belonged to people living in urban areas of nothern Europe in NextSundayAD, in other words in a place and time where spaying animals was a highly recommended procedure.

* Preacher from ''Film/DeepBlueSea'' allows his pet parrot to nibble some kind of white cake topping (frosting, whipped cream, marshmallow ... it's not clear which) from his finger. Although not necessarily ''toxic'', all-of-the-above have far, far too much sugar and fat to agree with such a bird's digestive system.
