I have a bichon frise 8 weeks old and she likes to eat gumnuts from the gum tree. Will it hurt her ?? I think she has only eaten 1 or 2

Customer: Kesha Rose
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Kesha Rose?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

In regards ***** ***** question, we can see GI upset (vomiting, diarrhea, drooling) and lethargy when dogs overeat these. Therefore, it is best for Kesha to be kept from eating these (ie denying her access to the tree and surrounding ground, keeping the area clear of any that fall, etc) but a bit on occasion is unlikely to cause her serious harm.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
