    He'll probably be fine. Tomato leaves are edible, although I don't know why anyone would want to eat one.

    Thank you, I was VERY worried, because people said they were toxic.

    This sounds like exactly your situation, and since the piggy showed no signs of illness I think he was ok. Though part of the nightshade family they don't contain as many toxins...and since he only had a single leaf (especially if it was small) I don't think you need to worry too much

    Hello, you must remove the vine and any leaves from the tomato before feeding to your guinea pig. These are poisonous. This includes the stalk directly attached to the tomato (it looks a bit like a spider). But looking to your situation i think everything will be ok.
