Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 14 years and I'd like to help with your question.It is always concerning when a dog eats something that he shouldn't. Cherry pits do contain a toxic substance, but even a small dog has to eat a lot of them to get enough to cause a concern. I is small so it is not that likely to cause a blockage. He shouldn't have any problems!Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Once all your questions have been answered, please rate my answer.
