Tomatoes are dog-friendly!
The soft edible fruit of the tomato plant, the tomato has its origins in western South America.
First introduced to Europe by the Spanish when they conquered South America in the 16th century, tomatoes are now widely grown all over the world, although they’re not the tomatoes that once were, as you may have noticed. The modern desire to produce a tomato that ripens uniformly red has resulted in commercial tomatoes that lack both taste and sugar. Not something that home grown tomatoes suffer from oddly enough. Just ask our dogs!
Botanically a fruit, in culinary terms the tomato is considered a vegetable because of its low sugar content in relation to other edible fruits. (Not a lot of dogs know that one!).
Benefits of Tomatoes:
Tomatoes are a good source of vitamins A, C and K, potassium, chromium and manganese. As well as being low in calories and fat, tomatoes can help fight against cancer.
High in fibre, tomatoes can help reduce the risk of heart disease, help promote strong, healthy bones and promote good muscle health. They can also help maintain a healthy blood pressure, are good for a dog’s skin and coat, and, being anti-oxidant rich, can help protect against the likes of cancer and degenerative diseases. And of course their high fibre content helps maintain a healthy digestive system.
So, all in all, tomatoes have a lot going for them as far as dogs are concerned.
