Can Dogs Eat Potatoes?

There are a lot of fruits and vegetables that dogs can eat and a lot that dogs can’t eat. Your vet, local ASPC, and other animal professionals can most likely help you discover what foods are safe and what foods are not. One food that isn’t safe in raw form is the potato. 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 dogs 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. Consult with your vets New Orleans, LA before giving your dog a new type of food.
