Will crab apples hurt my dog?
Although the regular flesh of apples isn't considered dangerous, the leaves/stems/pips or seeds of apples and apple trees are all toxic to dogs.
When ingested chemicals in them are converted to Cyanide, a very dangerous poison.
Symptoms of poisoning from apples/crabapples can include: Panting.
Generally, an adult average sized dog at 12 months of age, weighs about twice their weight at 4 months of age, or 2.5x the weight at 14 weeks.
Adult giant breeds grow more slowly, take longer to mature, and don't reach adult growth until they're at least 16-18 months old.
A fairly accurate calculation you can do to predict an adult height for your puppy is to multiply her height at six months by 100 and divide that answer by 75.
For example, a puppy who is 8 inches at the shoulder when she is 6 months old should be between 10.5 and 11 inches at the shoulder when she is finished growing.
Check his ears.
If your puppy's ears stand up when he gets excited, they probably will stand permanently by the time he is 6-months-old.
Another way to tell if your pup's ears are likely to stand is by observing where they are set on the head.
In general, apples are harmless to dogs.
However, there are a couple of things to be cautious about: the seeds and too many apples.
Apple seeds contain amygdlin, a form of cyanide, which is very poisonous to every living thing.
So, if you're going to give your dog apples, core the apples.
