Hello, you’re through to Dr Edele. I’m a vet working here in the UK. I see Shadow has gotten into something he shouldn’t have. Peach stones can get stuck in puppies intestines causing a blockage that requires surgery to remove them. They also contain hydrogen cyanide which is toxic to them so I advise you take him to your nearest Emergency veterinary clinic tonight where he can get a full exam and perhaps an X-ray to confirm that he did eat it. The vet May give him medication to induce vomiting (but this can be risky as peach stones are large and can cause more injury to the oesophagus(food pipe).
