Clarence goes to doggie day care a few times a week at his vet's. They absolutely love him there and he loves going. The vet has been good so far so we feel comfortable leaving him there. The past few times we've picked Clarence up, we've notice pieces of crabapple in his stool. He doesn't seem to have a tummy ache or anything else bothering him after his doggie day care days; his stool is just really firm (which is a nice change from his usual semi-loose ones. He took a course of antibiotics last week for some weird bacteria thing in his stomach, so they're better now but still a little loose) and we can see pieces of the crabapples in it. Are crabapples toxic to dogs? Will they do any other harm to him? Maybe we need a new doggie daycare without a crabapple tree...
Shouldn't be a problem in small quantities - unless they spray them with a pestacide! Munch on Clarence!
We too figured as long as he doesn't eat the whole tree of them and not everyday, he should be ok. Nothing on a Google search about bad effects on doggies--found a recipie for crabapple jelly though, so I guess if they're ok for humans, they're ok for our furry friends (in small amounts). Yes, Clarence is quite the muncher.
Freedom and Honey bear eat them practically right off the tree, and they seem to just stool out. In one end and out the other. They've been fine.
In fact that's what they are doing in my siggy picture, looking for and eating crab apples
