How many cherry pits are toxic to dogs?

It has been reported that dogs can die from eating cherry pits, which can have enough thallium in them to poison a dog. This is something I had always been concerned about because we live in a neighborhood where the kids eat the cherries from the backyard and we've seen them throw out the pits.

The cherry pits are not safe for human consumption, so that should not be a concern for dogs, but it seems to me that the cherry pits are the same as the apple and cherry pits that people ingest everyday. I would love to hear what others think.

Yes, it is definitely safe for humans. I have seen cherry pits around for years and they are the same as apple and cherry pits. I have never heard of anyone ever dying from eating them. You can look at the wikipedia article on thallium poisoning to see what the level can do to a dog.

I would suggest the best solution is to never let your dog be near the cherry pits. There is a solution for a cherry pit problem that would eliminate the possibility of it affecting your dog. When I had the problem years ago, I just used a metal pan and put water in it and tossed the pits in. I did this in the early morning so they wouldn't go on the grass.

I've read that the pit may look and feel like an apple, but it's really a berry. I think the thallium is absorbed through the pits by your dog if they eat a lot of cherries. Thallium is not considered toxic in small amounts and it's not considered a food safety issue as long as the concentration is kept below 2 parts per million.

The pit is a toxic fruit? I had no idea! I am so going to change the way I eat my cherries. I think I will put them on the floor of my refrigerator, so my dog can't reach them. We always had a dog door for the kids so this would not be a problem for them.

Just to make sure this is the case, I had to do a quick search. It looks like the only thing you can eat from the cherry is the juice, and the thallium is not dangerous. From the wiki:

Quote:

The danger from thallium occurs when it is taken in greater amounts over a long period of time. For this reason, thallium poisoning rarely occurs except by intentional intake. Thallium can affect a person's nervous system, liver, and kidneys. Symptoms are similar to other causes of poisoning, which include dizziness, headaches, fever, diarrhea, and vomiting.

Cherry pits are safe for dogs as long as they are not allowed to ingest the juice in any form. The thallium is not dangerous and dogs do not have to be tested for the substance.

I'm going to start wearing gloves when we go picking cherries and not leave the pits out where the kids can reach them. It's only going to take one child to bring a cherry pit to their mouth for it to be a problem.

I have used a cherry pit remover (they work best at low temperatures) to get them out of the pits. But, I always make sure to keep the pits separate from the children.

When you are picking the cherries, you need to get all the pits out. The kids can play with them as much as they want to. It's not until you actually eat the cherries that you'll have a problem with the pit.

As far as your children are concerned, I'm sure they'd be fine with the pits.

I agree with what the other people have sd about not letting them in the house. That's what I did when the kids were little and I had a problem with them eating the pits. I threw them in the toilet.

I was reading an article on thallium poisoning a couple of months ago. The information there was from a year or two ago and it had some good information. There is no way to be sure that thallium is the cause of your problem, but the article was helpful. If you need to read it, here is the link:

There is no known reason why cherry pits are more toxic than apple or cherry pits. As with most foods, I would recommend that dogs are fed a high quality, natural, non-GMO, organic dog food.

As for your other question, how long will your dog be poisoned for? I assume you'll take the dog to a vet as soon as you notice that it is sick. The article on thallium poisoning mentioned that it is a symptom-based disease and that your dog could die in less than a day or could live for a few months. In the latter case, the owner would have to watch for additional symptoms to indicate that the animal is sick agn.

Thank you for the article on thallium poisoning. I had always assumed that apple and cherry pits were safe for dogs. But I guess I'll just make sure they never are around my kids and make sure they never eat any of the pits, because the article you posted shows me that it is dangerous.

If you don't have access to a vet right away, then I would suggest you call your vet for an appointment right away and make sure the dog is safe. It's never a good idea to let the dog eat a toxic substance if it is sick.

I am pretty sure the cherries we eat are not thallium-treated. I have read someplace that thallium-treated apples are not safe to eat. It is better to use fresh cherries. The pits are not that much of a problem because you can just throw them away. The kids can play with the pits and no harm will come to them.
