Yes, many dogs can tolerate small amounts of tomato... Kodi LOVES the little grape tomatoes and gets one every time we have a salad. But too many is VERY acid and can cause problems for that reason.This is a great post but there are a few things I am surprised about. Now, my corgi, Foxy, absolutely loved tomatoes. We used to actually give her tomatoes as a treat. Am I mistaken about tomatoes?
Raw eggs? I thought raw eggs would be good as long as they were without the shell. Or is it the same concern with dogs as with humans about raw eggs (salmonella)?
I'm assuming that no corn on the cob because they may ingest the cob. Corn would be ok though, wouldn't it?
Now, I wouldn't think salt would be good, but I've seen homemade dog treat recipes that call for a small amount of salt (I omit it though).
Thanks, Dave, for this post.
I would guess the same as you on raw eggs... probably a salmonella issue. Both mine adore eggs... I scramble them in the microwave for them.
Yes, corn without the cob is OK, though it is a fairly allergenic food,so some dogs might not tolerate it well.
Small amounts of salt, or even a bit of ham or bacon now and then won't hurt your healthy dog, but dogs (and we!) don't need all that salt, so it's best to avoid too much.
