The leaves and stems of the tomato plant (Solanum lycopersicum) contain solanine and demissine, which are glycoalkoloids; these can be toxic to horses if consumed in large amounts. It would take consumption of an estimated 2.5 mg of parts of the plant per kg of body weight to start demonstrating toxic symptoms.
