Can Dogs Eat Cherries?

The most obvious hazard of eating cherries is the pit, which can cause intestinal blockages when ingested. This can mean serious health issues for your pup, and some potentially expensive vet bills for you. But there’s also a hidden danger that many dog owners aren’t aware of: cherry pits, stems, and leaves all contain cyanide. If it’s consumed in large quantities, cyanide is toxic to dogs.
