My Boxer Ate a Potato!

There are various plants, fruits, and vegetables that can be harmful to our canine and feline friends. If you think your Boxer has eaten something toxic then call your vet right away as it may or may not be harmful. In general, raw potatoes are not recommended for our canine friends. Potatoes, tomatoes, and other plants that are members of the Solanum species are part of the nightshade family of plants, which contains dangerous toxins that can be harmful to Boxers and other pets. While some of a raw potato may not harm your dog, it’s important to make sure he does not eat any of the green part of the potato plant as this does contain toxic alkaloids. If these toxins are eaten in large quantities your dog may start to show signs of excessive drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, drowsiness, confusion, etc. Ask your vet Wichita, KS before giving your dog any type new food
