Dog eating Maple seed pods

6 posts in this topic

So my neighbor has a maple tree in their backyard that is currently shedding those annoying helicopter seed pods. Normally its juts annoying but this year I have a dog who seems to enjoy eating them.

He's a Vizsla and a little over 13 weeks old. Basically at that age he wants to eat or atleast taste everything.

Last night and this morning I noticed he [PoorWordUsage] a much larger amount then normal which could be partially attributed to me increasing his food portions but it seemed a little more then just that. Also it was a little runny when coming out.

Also he's been sneezing up a storm the last couple days.

I'm not sure if his eating the seed pods as anything to do with either thing. I try to keep him from eating things off the ground as much as possible but with millions of those pods in my backyard right now its a lossing battle. Would these seed pods hurt him at all or maybe just give him a little upset stomach?

I'm taking him to the vet tomorrow for some more vaccinations so I'll ask them as well but I thought I would post the question here to see what you all might think.

Sorry, I have no idea about the seed pods. We have a ton of them, too. I can't imagine they'll do much harm, though.

My dog's been sneezing up a storm lately, too.

I'm thinking the sneezing is more of an allergy thing.

My thoughts, too, but he's been hacking a bit, too, so we're making a vet visit tonight frown

my little guy was hacking a little the other day as well but that has seemed to go away. The sneezing seems to have taken its place.

my 10 month old brings in these darn pods from a bottle tree we have. he will sit and crunch on them and same thing start sneezing. I give him a benedryl to help with his allergies. Not sure what to say about the maple pods the ones i have a fairly large in size like golf ball. One lesson we learned was he does not go out without supervision until he is a bit older. good luck
