5. Cherries, peach pits, apple seeds
While most humans have the sense to spit out a cherry pit, who’s to say your dog won’t just gobble the thing whole? It’s best to keep dogs and cats away from cherries. Their pits, stems, and leaves contain cyanide, an enzyme that prevents cells from taking in oxygen. Enough cyanide can be lethal.
A single cherry pit may not give your pet cyanide poisoning, but it could lodge itself in the animal’s digestive tract and create a blockage. If this happens, your dog might vomit, eat less food, and poop less often. In addition to cherries, peach pits and apple seeds also contain cyanide.
