Can shih tzu eat plums?

Best answers

Fruits. Berries, particularly blueberries, make good treats to neatly hand-feed your Shih Tzu.

A few chunks of apple or pear make a tasty and healthy treat for your Tzu, but watch that he doesn't eat the seeds of either fruit.

Apple and pear seeds contain cyanogenic glycosides, which can be toxic.

Plums are one of several fruits that contain hydrogen cyanide, which is extremely toxic to dogs if eaten. The highest concentration is in the plum pit, but there is also a substantial enough amount in the foliage and roots to cause gastric irritation and possible respiratory distress if eaten.

Prunes are dried plums, which are also not recommended for dogs.

A slice of plum or a single prune probably won't affect your dog, but both are high in sugar content and fiber, which can shock your dog's digestive system.

The plum's pit does contain small amounts of cyanide, but the pits are removed before dehydration.
