Default Are orange peels toxic?

Emma found some orange peels. I have NO idea where she found them and I know she hasn't been the trash, it's a compactor. But, are they toxic?

No, they are not toxic. Depending on how many Emma ate, she may have some tummy upset, or even throw up a little. If she doesn't throw them up, they will pass through on their own.

I think your Emma will be just fine. Our last boxer Sophie was wild to have oranges, peels anything she could get a hold of. Never made her sick. You could not eat an orange in peace with her around. She would start drooling and crying if you did'nt cave in and give her a slice of it.

Thank goodness! That silly girl of mine seems to eat anything she can! Last night she tried munching an eraser

I'm glad to hear this too. Binga loves mandarins. I buy the ones that are easy peel and they are really small. I dropped a piece of one when I was outside and she grabbed it then just played with it for a while. She eventually ate it and decided she was a fan. So now if I am eating one she will try to stare a hole in my head.

My two are bad about eating little things on the floor. If its on the floor its fair game... a leaf, piece of paper, pieces of the carpet, my pen... Binga did that one... ink everywhere. Glad she didn't get sick.

Silly dogs!
