Ingestion of large amounts of blueberries can cause gastrointestinal upset or diarrhea. Ingestion of blueberry stems and plants can cause gastrointestinal obstruction. The leaves and plants, while not toxic, are very difficult to digest. Signs of problems include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, abdominal pain, straining to defecate, and/or a decreased appetite. While deer tend to eat only the fruit of blueberry bushes, they will eat young plants if particularly hungry and cause damage to mature plants due to their bulk and rubbing against branches.
