What happens if a dog eats a tomato? If you have a tomato garden, keep your dog away from it. The most common sign of tomato poisoning in dogs is gastrointestinal upset, but dogs may also suffer from vomiting, diarrhea, drowsiness, confusion, an abnormal heart rate, and other symptoms. If you see signs of tomato poisoning in your dog, get to the vet.
How much tomato is safe for dogs? One large or two small ripe red tomatoes per week is OK to feed your dog, but you should start with an even smaller amount to see if your dog has a negative reaction. Some dogs are allergic to tomatoes.
Can I give my dog cooked tomato? Cooked tomatoes are safe for dogs, just like ripe ones, and tomato pomace is a common ingredient in many dog foods.
Can dogs have potatoes? White potatoes belong to the nightshade family of vegetables, which includes tomatoes; like tomatoes, raw potatoes contain solanine, a compound that is toxic to some dogs. However, cooking a potato reduces the levels of solanine. If you do feed your dog a potato, it should be baked or boiled, with nothing added to it.
