Didn't see anything about tomatoes but good information on what should NOT feed your dog.

Mine eat anything and everything that I do! lol If I'm chopping up veggies for salad, I'll generally have 1 dog on one side and the other on the opposite side of me. They've eaten lettuce, celery, carrots, potatoes, cukes, they love apples...but I've never tried any of the other fruits...might have to try bananas and blueberries though.

I have long seen tomatoes on the lists of foods not safe for dogs. However I see tomato products included in a number of dog foods and treats. So it's one of those things that I consider okay in moderation. I certainly don't feed my dogs tomatoes but I don't avoid canine foods/treats that contain tomato.

I had no clue about grapes until tonight, I was eating red grapes, they are small, I assume because of the season and my husky, 4 months old, was whining so I gave him 9-10 of them and then researched it. Idiot! I've been a nervous wreck all night. He is 35 lbs and the animal hospital emergency room said he should be ok but to watch him. This was about 5 hours ago and so far, he is good. Been peeing regularly and no vomiting! I read online the toxicity is about 1 grape per lb of body weight and seeing as how he's 35 lbs, maybe more, he should be alright. I pray he is. I am still frazzled. I knew about chocolate and plants...who knew about grapes? I wish someone would have told me. Sad I feel so awful.

He should be ok, especially if the vet wasn't worried - just make sure he gets plenty of water. There are other fruits you can safely feed - I just look it up online prior to feeding. They love berries!

Thanks Sam! I have been a mess all night, looking up everything I could get my hands on about it and watching him like a hawk, even down to writing a log of his pee and bowel movements since he ate them.

Coquito started begging when I was eating dried mangoes so I gave him a piece. Now I can't touch the dried mango bag without him running over to beg. Also not fruit but my girl was eating pork rinds and made the mistake of dropping one and Coquito gobbled it up before she could bend over and pick it up. If she has pork rinds now he will go by her and start howling. It's so funny.

Absolutely right about that, cranberry is good for the urinary tract and has lots of antioxidants. Smile

It's actually the leaves and stems that they can't eat. The fruit is fine. I did some research when my puppy started picking cherry tomatoes off of the vine...

My 12 week old is obsessed with baby carrots. He'll whine at the kitchen door and then when I open it, he'll sit in front of the fridge. He LOVES carrots.

How many baby carrots do you think is too much for him? I like feeding them to him because he'll sit for a while and chew on them. But I don't want to ruin his diet.

Help?

Keno loves his fruits and veggies. anything i eat, he eats.

the others will eat it them because its a treat, but Keno really loves them.

Izzy and Koozie are the picky ones when it comes to things not dog food/treats.
I joke with my husband that Koozie and Izzy go for the un healthy foods, while Keno and Klutch will eat the healthy stuff with me!

That's good to know about the grapes. Onions though, I didn't know those were bad. My dog loves kale lol she gobbles it up like if it were a treat!

Lucian loves carrots as well. Anytime I open the fridge, his head is in there waiting for a carrot. I use them as training treats too. He probably gets fed 3 to 4 baby carrots a day. Hasn't had any trouble poop wise, and still eats all of his food.
