Choke Cherry?

Asked September 20, 2018, 10:35 AM EDT

There’s two of these trees in the large dog, dog park in Olney. I thought the fruit could be mildly poisonous to dogs. Do you have any information and/or advice?

This looks like a type of crabapple. Take a look at the attached link from Cornell regarding poisonous plants and animals. There is also a page on categories of plants affecting dogs. Choke cherry is on the list. You can also contact your vet for more information
