  1. i think the acidity levels of the human and animal are different………………. the more acidety the more tough and larger the food you can handle.

  2. It is a different physiological system. For example cows many stomachs so that different bacteria an aid the digestion of fodder.
    In the case of, for example, chocolate being OK for us, but poisonous to dogs; dogs do not have the enzyme in the liver to break down the active substances in chocolate, where as humans do. So humans can safely excrete it where as in dogs the substance builds up and becomes toxic.
