:cool-dog: Question for you: How many pecans can a dog eat without it being harmful? We are having a bumper crop of pecans this year in Texas, and I have a huge tree in my backyard. My pup, who is 6 months old, has taken to eating these pecans, shell and all, as if they were doggie treats! He is scrounging them up off the ground, or waits until they fall off the tree and runs and grabs them, or waits until the squirrels finish what they want and drop the remains on his head (squirrels are devilish little things). Now, given, thankfully, he is mostly an inside dog. But it is SO beautiful here, me and my 3 dogs are out a lot. He must have just eaten 5 while we were out for 30 minutes! Shell and all! Can this be bad for him, do you know? I have googled it, and came up with little. My other dog, also does this, but not to this extent, and the third could care less about anything, unless it is a liver treat. I guess pecans are sweet...........but you would think this could reek havoc on his digestion system......plus I worry about some sort of fungus or something being on them. Any thoughts?
