While most people try to avoid eating the core of an apple, it's actually much more toxic to dogs. Along with a few other fruits, you should definitely be careful not to leave apple cores laying around for dogs to get their paws on.

What's In It:

The core of an apple (as well as plums, peaches, pears and apricots) contain cyanogenic glycosides which is also known as cyanide.

What It Can Do:

Some of the symptoms that come from ingesting the toxin are dizziness, struggling to breath, seizures, collapsing, hyperventilation, shock and even coma.

  1. What a load of rubbish. My 4 bassets literally eat 10 of those foods fairly regularly, and they are all fine. Granted my big boy once at a 2.2 lbs block of cheese in one sitting. He farted cheese for 2 weeks. This is clickbait.

  2. To save u time, the list is……
    Chocolate, Milk, Cheese, Yeast dough, Macadamia nuts, Caffeine, Bacon (fatty meats), Onion, Garlic, Avocados, Grapes, Apple cores (also plum, peach, pear, apricot cores)
    These cause anything from sickness to death!! BEWARE, please!!!
