- Not a substitute for professional veterinary help.
Maybe. If you’ve given your dog a few bites of sliced plum, she’ll be fine. But if your dog has eaten an entire plum, with the stone, there’s some reason for concern. Plum flesh is safe, but it’s high in sugar content, so it isn’t the best snack for dogs. Plum pits are have a sharp end and can cause digestive obstruction. The pit also contains cyanide, so if your dog has crushed the pit with her teeth, there is some added risk.
Symptoms to Look For
If your dog has eaten an entire plum, keep an eye on her and call your vet if you notice any of the following symptoms:
- Signs of stomach pain, such as loss of appetite or depressed energy
- Vomiting or diarrhoea
- Difficulty breathing
- Skin irritation
