Thanks for the questionCustomer

In direct answer to your question : Acorns are in fact potentially toxic to dogs but they usually have to eat quite large amounts before any serious signs will occur. Look for such symptoms as gastric upset, diarrhea, bloody diarrhea. Of course contact a vet ASAP if concerned.

The botXXXXX XXXXXne is that a few now and again won't hurt your dog but try and avoid it if you can.
