No, no parts of the kumquat are toxic to dogs although any citrus fruit has the potential to cause vomiting, diarrhea, and depression in dogs. This is more commonly seen with oranges, lemons and limes, however. There's no need to induce emesis or treat your dog in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
