Rotten tomato?

Did you know that the humble tomato plant, (the green fruit, foliage and stems) has a sneaky substance called solanine in it? A large amount of the plant would need to be ingested, however solanine poisoning can cause nasty gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g. diarrhoea and vomiting), lethargy, weakness, and even confusion.

Ripened tomatoes contain less solanine and cooked red tomatoes are a fantastic source of fibre for our dogs, which is why you will often see them in the ingredients list of dog food recipes.

We are nearly at the end of August, my greenhouse is full of green tomatoes, with it feeling like autumn today, I am wondering if they will ever ripen!

CUrrently taking a break...

Hello everyone!

I have been a bit quiet recently, getting Spirit’s Community up and running has become more than a full time job! So until it is resourced, I am going to take a break here. But I will be back later in the year with a fabulous new nutrition programme to help your dog maintain a healthy weight!

Meanwhile, a huge thank you for all your support & do pop over to the shop and take a browse around!
