I meant eggplant (not zucchini). But they eat cooked zucchini too.

Ripe potatoes are not poisonous to dogs (or people) and sweet and regular potatoes are part of many commercial dog foods. Nightshade vegetables including tomatoes and zuchini are not poisonous to dogs. My dogs love mashed potatoes, stews and quiches with potatoes and greens. They love baked sweet potatoes which make a sweet treat. Vegetables are now a big part of their diets in lieu of commercial (toxic) dried kibble. Adult house dogs only need about 20% protein.

@Suzann - Ripe potatoes are safe for dogs, they are used in many commercial dog foods and considered an acceptable treat by the ASPCA. Dogs should never be feed green potatoes or any other part of the plant as those portions of the plant are toxic. As with any treat you should always check with your vet before introducing a new food.

Dogs can't eat potatoes, potatoes are nightshades and nightshades are POISONOUS to dogs.

Voula, broccoli is ok for dogs, as long as it's not fed as more than 10% of the dog's diet.

My dog loves all these veggies. I have always given her fresh veggies and fresh fruit that is safe for dogs to have.

And yet I read another article that states in large portions, broccoli can be lethal to
dogs.

"The amount of broccoli that your dog can consume without experiencing any negative side effects specifically depends on the size of your dog. One piece of broccoli to a Labrador might be fine, but could be potentially deadly to a pint-sized dog such as a Chihuahua. It has been determined that your dog can have some broccoli as long as it accounts for less than 5% of their daily food intake. Any more than 10% of your dog’s daily diet can cause serious stomach problems and can be fatal if it makes up more than 25%.

How can it be so difficult to feed a dog without making dog food companies rich for feeding our dogs garbage?
