Default Can dogs have tomatoes?

Ember was begging so mom gave her about three pieces of chopped tomato she was fixing for tacos. Are tomatoes okay for dogs? Ember seemed to like it so I wanted to know.

yes and no. some people say its ok some people say its not good.. i think pasta sauce from tomatoes is ok but not the raw tomatoes

"Tomatoes also contain atropine, which can cause dilated pupils, tremors, and heart arrhythmias. "

Tomatoes
Ripe tomatoes are not toxic, however the green parts of the tomato plant are considered toxic.

My dogs have eaten fresh tomatoes for 14 years! No problems ever. We grow them and thet love to go snatch them off the vine--lol. It just makes a mess with seeds down their fronts ( mostly my previous white chested shelties). I will give the Chi's little chunks to play with and eat...they love it--just not too much or you will get loose stools.

Rule of thumb on veggies...above ground growers loosen bowels, below ground growers firm bowels.

Mine love chewing a carrot stick, broccoli stem or the center vein you cut out of a collard green or piece of romaine! Yum...low calorie treat!

My dogs also have eaten our tomatoes from our garden. None of them has ever been sick from them.
