Peach Tree
(Prunus spp.)

Poisonous to Horses

Toxic parts and chemical: cyanide in leaves,
stems and seeds and more toxic if wilted

Symptoms of Poisoning: labored breathing, lack
of coordination, brick red gums, trembling,
agitation, labored breathing and death.
Symptoms and death occur in a very short time.

Cyanide is not actually present in these trees
until two different components in the leaves come
together, such as when a leaf is damaged, wilted
or broken off, which causes the two components
to meet and cyanide is produced by chemical
