My dog JUST ate a handful of cherry pits. Just the pits. I know that these naturally contain cyanide and can be harmful, but I'm not sure how much or what to do. The vet is closed.

What should I do? I'm panicking a little.

Call the vet. they must have an emergency line. Not sure if you should use peroxide to maker him vomit them.

Well, I couldn't get ahold of my vet, but I have a breeder, a trainer/groomer/rescuer/all around dog person, a vet student, and a retired vet as my facebook friends, so I asked there as well.

The general consensus was to induce vomiting with peroxide, since it had just happened. I did, and while I think my dog hates me, I feel a lot better.

Why is it dogs always seem to get into trouble when the vet's office is closed? Glad you were able to resolve the problem.
