Potatoe is fine as well as tomatoes (well washed of course), but keep the leaves, vines, stems away they are highly toxic.
Right on the money Tracy!
A potato, if cooked, is fine (like the mashed you described). A tomato, is fine whether cooked or raw. The leaves, vines, and stems, are not good... it's a fruit thing (and a tomato is a fruit)...but the fruit itself is fine with a tomato.
Veggies, like a potato - cook.
If you're concerned, and even if you're not, talk with your vet. The nutrition information is only a guideline, not ever an absolute.
Tomatoes and Potato are both from the nightshade family. Chances are the toxins in the leaves/stems/vines carry the same poisonous properties as deadly nightshade.
