Have a tree in my garden and George makes a beeline for the fallen plums. Clearing them up as they fall, but are they poisonous does anyone know

the fruit themselves arnt poisonous but the stones contain cyanide but i would be more worried about stones causing a blockage, another concern would be if too many plums are eaten they may ferment in the stomach and could cause the stomach to bloat.

I also have a plum issue from next door's tree, plus pears from the other side. Dylan is keener on the pears! If you are clearing them regularly then I wouldn't have thought there would be too much problem - maybe the 1970's poos will grow a bit like Dylan's do in pear season! If you watch him go to them and give a firm "NO" or "LEAVE" followed by a treat, you should be able to train him to leave them (Hopefully!!).

omg ive just found out Damsons are also poisonous and so are conkers!!! so that means we will have to fence off a section of the garden !!!
Mind you just had designer thought and i could pack it full of fruit trees and have my own little orchard ...... nice :D

Delta likes plums, but yeah its a good idea to teach im to leave, also teach him to bring back whatever he has in his mouth. Delta ran about with a bag of the prosesed cheese slises that she found on a walk when she was a puppy, was so worried she would eat the bag, didnt get it off her till she had eaten most of the cheese.
