. NO NIGHTSHADE FAMILY

There is a lot of anecdotal evidence that dogs do not do well on tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and eggplant – the nightshade family. Unless someone does further research, we are left to claims that these veggies and dogs do not do well together. While I haven’t seen any practical evidence of dogs getting poisoned by tomatoes or their “cousins”, the leaves of these plants are definitely toxic.

. BROCCOLI, CABBAGE OR CAULIFLOWER MYTH OR REALITY?

Some sources claim that the cruciferous family may increase the chances of hypothyroidism – a condition represented by low thyroid gland hormone. We also call these plants goitrogenic. I must confess that I have tried to stay away from these when feeding Skai, only because I am not sure if these claims are valid or not. I would love to hear from anyone who knows of a study confirming this claim.I recommend either staying away from these veggies or feeding them in small quantities. Once again, when you are unsure, go with the lowest possible risk. There are plenty of other vegetables that are definitely safe.
