Avoid raw sweet potatoes as they can clog the digestive tract.

Avoid processed sweet potatoes as in the kind used for pies and casseroles. The only sweet potatoes dogs should eat are natural ones that are washed, peeled, cooked, and allowed to cool before eating. The potatoes should also be cut into smaller pieces to avoid a choking hazard.
