I'd call the E-vet but I think that they are home numbers and I don't want to get someone out of bed and then learn it is nothing.......red face

I found this

" Apple seeds, cherry pits, peach pits, pear pips, plums pits, and apricot pits contain cyanide, which is poisonous. While a few apple seeds may not cause a problem, the effects can accumulate over time if they are given to dogs regularly. Dogs should not be allowed to chew on a peach pit, cherry pit, apricot pit, or plum pit. Chewing can allow ingestion of cyanide. Chewing could also result in the pit being swallowed, causing continuous exposure to cyanide, or could cause the dog to choke."

So is he going to be okay???

I also found somthing that said if the seed is not broken that it wont cause any harm, knowing Barkley he would of eating the whole thing in two bites and I feel a little bit better now.

I think he is safe with one apple, given his weight.
