My kids are the worst for taking a bite or 2 from a apple n then leaving it sit somewhere and for some reason cali is obsessed with them she loooves them walks around with the whole thing crunching away. the others will try and play with them like they are balls but dont get down with them like cali does. Is it ok for her to have apples like that? I could take them away from her but we have a huge apple tree in the yard do I need to worry when those fall off every year ?

Clyde loves apples. I have fed them whole apples before. Apple seeds do contain a cyanide compound but it would be really hard to eat enough of them to cause a problem.

Loki loooooves his fruits and veggies. He sits and waits for me to share when I am cutting up bell peppers and broccoli. I always share my apples with him but never seeds.

I think the cianide compound comes from the seeds so if you can take the seeds out or don't let her get all the way down to the core :)

Mine love all kinds of raw/cooked fruits and veggies (except grapes). Fat Boy will even steal potatoes out of the potato bin when I am not looking.

Grapes are very toxic to dogs, yet no one has been able to determine which compound in the grapes cause the problems. When too many grapes (or raisins for that matter) are consumed by dogs they can go into renal failure and die. When my wife was a vet tech she dealt with it on several occasions along with cocoa poisoning and a few other foods. The vet she worked with was part of a study trying to identify what makes the grapes but no one compound was found to be the culprit.

Apples are high in fiber and is a good nutritious food for dogs.The only problem is that apples contains seeds which are harmful for dogs.I give my dogs with apple slices in the morning and afternoon..Some dogs like red apples while others prefer tart green apples.
