Default Nightshade veggies and oxalic acid

Forgive me for all the questions here, I'm a little confused.

So if you have a dog with joint problems, you should avoid foods in the nightshade family AND foods with high oxalic acid content?

For some reason I thought they were interchangeable, but I guess not since some nightshades contain very little oxalic acid and some foods like carrots that arenít nightshades have a relatively high amount.

And this may be a silly question, but dogs with joint problems shouldnít be on a potato containing food like EVO, right? And amaranth is very high in oxalic acid, so wouldnít it need to be avoided as well? I know itís in some foods, even though itís not an approved ingredient.

Or would the cooked amounts of potentially aggravating ingredients even be enough to matter? What about tomato pomace?

What's the 'safe' amount for oxalic acid? Are carrots okay at .5g/100g?
