What happens if a dog eats tomatoes? 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 will hurt a dog? Dogs can absolutely have the tomato fruit. If you want to give a tomato to a dog, small amounts won’t hurt them a bit. Many dogs love them for the same reason people do; they’re tasty! While they are nontoxic, don’t feed too much tomato to your dog because it can cause stomach upset.
Why do dogs eat tomatoes? Tomatoes are chock-full of fiber, beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C, and can even be a digestive aid—as long as they’re ripe. Many dogs don’t even like tomatoes because of the texture (and because, hey, it’s not a juicy steak). But if your dog is curious, you can offer them a bite-sized piece of ripe tomato.
Are cherry tomatoes bad for dogs? Grape tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, and other varieties are safe for dogs to consume in moderation as long as they are red and ripe, and the green parts (stems and leaves) have been removed.
