is it normal for my dog to eat both the small branches and leaves off my small tree? Is it safe?

she has been pulling the branches off and running away with the sticks then bites the leaves with the wood, she eats it. How do I know if this is safe or if this is normal?

Sounds like boredom. He needs leash walking and some other toys to chew on like a black kong. They make excellent chew toys and you can throw them a distance also.
Branches that are green can break off and get lodged in the gums and throat.
So it is not healthy

I do know that peach pits are toxic and Orbit gum is deadly.

I have the same problem!
But I don't know if it's safe, I'm pretty sure it's normal.

I just want to know how to get he to stop!
