    DefaultMickey and the bowl of cherries. (eye roll)

    Mickey just ate about a handful of cherries, outside of the inevitable accidental planting of cherry trees that's bound to follow, is there anything else I should be concerned with. I mean, besides the fact that he just slimed a whole bowl of cherries, and is now shamelessly surfing coffee tables...

    the pitts of many fruits are highly toxic. call your vet to check on whether cherry pitts fall within that category.

    I know that apple seeds and peach pits are on that list, but don't know what other ones are included.

    yup - I just googled.
    This link lists: apricots, apples, grapes, cherries and peaches. Please read:

    Oh crap, that's great. Let me give them a call...

    edited to add: I just called, they're going to look it up and call me back. He ate a total of four cherries, DH told me that there were four bruised ones that he and DD wouldn't eat. Thank God for small favors.

    Well, having Mickey has kept me in the childproofing state of mind all these years, so at least the boys have a lesser likelihood of getting injured. IF I have to make Mick puke, DH is helping, since he's the one who muffed it.

    It's a good thing to be safe, but my understanding is that the toxic stuff is inside the pit. So if the pits pass through uncrunched, he'll probably be just fine. A friend of ours had a Boston terrier who would constantly get out and eat wild cherries by the bucketful. With the exception of miniature poops full of cherry pits, he never had any problems.

    I'm bringing him in because they're taking too damn long to respond. I tried to make him throw up, but we've been down the peroxide road once before, and this dog has a loooong memory.

    I'm sure he's going to be fine, but this is the type of thing that'll make me nuts until I know for sure. I wonder if I can get the IPICAC down his throat...

    Update:

    Mickey is fine, I was told that he'd have to crunch all four pits to release enough cynide into his system to kill him. Scary thing is, they just keel over dead! Soooooo we have a new rule; no eating outside of the kitchen, and only when Mickey is gated completely out.

    I found out that the bark, leaves and stems of these trees are also poisonous, so any house we consider will have to be screened for this tree, and money budgeted for it's removal if we go forward and purchase it.

    *Sigh* and I so loved cherry trees. Oh well.
