Is Mexican Plum toxic to human?
The mexican plum, like nearly all members of the Prunus genus, has cyanide precursors in every part, including its seeds, with the sole exception of its fruit. Once a human eats the seeds, leaves, or any other part of the plant aside from the fruit flesh, these cyanotoxins will convert to cyanide gas when they make contact with stomach acid. This gas absorbs through mucus membranes and poisons the individual. Symptoms progress from agitation to weakness, loss of coordination and muscle spasms, difficulty moving or speaking, slowed respiration and heartbeat, and finally death.
Is Mexican Plum toxic to dog?
Aside from the ripened pulp found around the seeds of this plant, all of its parts contain cyanide and are toxic to dogs. Signs of poisoning include trouble breathing, gums that turn bright reed, shock, dilated pupils, and even death. The mexican plum is at its most dangerous to dogs when it is in the process of wilting.
If you think there is a risk your dog has ingested this plant, consult your veterinarian as soon as possible.
Is Mexican Plum toxic to cat?
Many plants of the Prunus mexicana genus, including apricot, cherry, and plum, contain cyanogenic chemicals that are fatally toxic to cats; immediate medical treatment is mandatory if a cat has eaten any part of one of these plants. Depending on the species, the leaves, stems, seeds, flower buds, pits, fruit, and (or) berries can be toxic. The symptoms of mexican plum poisoning include red gums, drooling, vomiting, dilated pupils, difficulty breathing, rapid heartbeat, panting, and shock.
