My dog has become unwell and it started when I changed his food..was looking at ingredients and wondered d could they be toxic to them as I know bassets can't eat broccoli...its OK he is better now but I think he may have had a tick bite. And for anyone interested its best to feed a dog who is recovering from vomiting etc to feed just vegetables that are cooked

Changing a dog's food suddenly can sometimes upset their stomach, especially if the new food has different ingredients or is not well-tolerated by the dog.
It's important to check the ingredients of any new food you give your dog, as some foods can be toxic to dogs. For example, chocolate, grapes, raisins, and onions are all toxic to dogs and can cause serious health problems.
While broccoli is not toxic to dogs, some dogs may have difficulty digesting it or other vegetables. It's always a good idea to introduce new foods gradually and in small amounts, to avoid upsetting your dog's stomach.
If your dog is recovering from vomiting or diarrhea, it's best to give them a bland diet of boiled chicken and rice, or just boiled vegetables like carrots and green beans. This can help to soothe their digestive system and provide them with the nutrients they need.
Regarding ticks, it's important to check your dog regularly for ticks, especially if you live in an area where they are common. Tick bites can transmit diseases to dogs, so it's important to remove any ticks as soon as possible and monitor your dog for any signs of illness.
I hope your dog is feeling better now, and please don't hesitate to seek veterinary care if you have any concerns about their health.

the basset can't eat broccoli is not true. Can Dogs Eat Broccoli? Can Dogs Have Broccoli? Is Broccoli Good For Dogs?.
However, AKC Chief Veterinary Officer Dr. Jerry Klein, DVM, warns that broccoli also contains a potentially harmful ingredient. The florets of this vegetable contain isothiocyanates, which can cause mild-to-potentially-severe gastric irritation in some dogs.

Dr. Klein also states, “Broccoli is considered safe in dogs if the total amount ingested is less than 10 percent of their daily intake; more than 25 percent is considered toxic.”
dogs don't need vegetable so they should only make up a small portion of the dogs diet. A bland meat based diet is better for recovering from gastric issues, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea etc

Bland diets help calm the revolt going on inside your pet’s stomach and intestines. Low in fiber, bland diets slow stool production so the urge to go to the bathroom is less frequent, easing diarrhea. These diets are also low in fat, are gentler on the stomach, and reduce vomiting. Moreover, they are highly digestible and reduce peristalsis (intestinal contraction) giving the GI tract a needed rest.
Vegetables are high in indigestible /insoluble fiber not what you want
