  • Is it harmful for my dog to eat acorns that are falling from our tree?

    Acorns are not toxic and should not cause any lasting harm. However, they do contain tannins so they can cause stomach upset and diarrhea in some pets. I recommend trying to keep you dog from eating them if at all possible to avoid this.
