    Default Warning- Apple cores

    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.

    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.
