I am sorry you are worried about your dog. How long ago did this happen? How big a dog is he?

Cherry pits are not really toxic, and are generally small enough to pass through without causing a blockage. Yes, there is a tiny bit of cyanide inside cherry pits, but if the pits were not chewed, the cyanide is not released; they will pass through him intact. A dog has to chew up and eat a great number of cherry pits for there to be a concern.
