Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you ...

1. Good news! : While apple pips have a cyanide content and can be toxic to dogs it actually takes quite a lot given for a prolonged period of time for problems to occur. Just one apple core including pips is well below any toxic level and this will not affect your dog in the slightest. Especially a larger dog like yours ...

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,
