Can my dog eat Grape tomatoes?
Grape tomatoes are a wonderful treat in the summer, but are often confused with cherry tomatoes. Cherry tomatoes are about the size and shape of cherries, while grape tomatoes are closer in shape and size to grapes. Grape tomatoes are used in everything from salads, enjoyed roasted and more. They don’t offer as much nutrition as regular tomatoes, but do contain some Vitamins A & C, along with a little fiber.
Can my dog eat grape tomatoes? Yes, but only when the tomatoes are ripe and red, as occasional treats. You should keep your canine companion from eating any of the green parts of grape tomatoes, including the leaves and stems. The green parts of the plant contain solanine and tomatine, both of which can be toxic to dogs. Can my puppy eat grape tomatoes? Yes, but only when red and he must not eat the green parts (leaves and stems). What to watch for if my puppy or dog ate the stems and/or leaves? He could become poisoned from the toxic chemicals in the leaves and stems. If your dog or puppy has eaten these parts, then be sure to monitor for any signs of digestive problems, including vomiting and diarrhea. He may also experience tremors, seizures of loss of coordination. If this occurs, be sure to get you pup to the vet as soon as possible.
