A couple of days ago I made the big mistake of giving the dogs an apple core each. Within a few hours one started being violently sick and the other had the runs. I hadn't realised that apple seeds are poisonous to dogs.!!

Vet said the seeds contain cyanide. Both dogs felt very poorly for the next 12 hours, but made full recovery.

Human food thats poisonous to dogs can be found here

I was surprised when I learned that a while back, too. I used to occasionally give the big dogs apple cores until I learned. Here is a website with some harmful foods, some of which I'd not seen listed elsewhere before:

There's information in the Library section too.

Glad the dogs are better and thanks for the warning to others.

Thank you for this, both of mine like apple and pears, I had no idea the seeds were dangerous.

My two love apple cores, but I have always taken the pips out - I think I must have heard something a long time ago that apple pips were dangerous.
