Is Tomato Soup Bad for Dogs?
Tomato soup can be given to dogs, as long as it does not contain any other dog-toxic ingredients. However, this dish definitely can’t substitute traditional well-balanced dog food.
According to the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Food Database, the 100g serving of tomato soup contains 42 calories, 2.08g of protein, 6.67g of carbs (5g from sugars), and 0.83g of fat, including 0.62g of saturated fats. It also has some vitamins and minerals: 312 IU of vitamin A, 2mg of Vitamin C, and 62m of Calcium. And even 158mg of sodium and 4mg of cholesterol.
So, it’s not that much of the nutrients and quite a lot of bad things – like high sodium content and bad fats.
You can sure give it some sips out of simple tomato soup. There is no need to worry about letting your dog have a taste of tomato soup. But check the labels carefully and definitely don’t make it a staple dog food.
