We already know that carrots are incredibly healthy for us humans. They provide plenty of health benefits not just for our eyes, but for our skin and overall health as well.
But what good does it do for dogs? Are carrots even safe for dogs to eat? Well, let’s find out, shall we?!
First of all, the answer to that question is yes, carrots are safe for our dogs to eat. These orange vegetables can be enjoyed as a crunchy snack, or as a part of our dog’s regular diet.
You can even use carrots as a treat reward for good behavior when you are training your dog. (And they are a hundred percent better than those treats you can purchase from pet stores!)
Carrots are also great for teething puppies. It helps relieve their teething discomfort. Just give them some cold or frozen carrots and let them chew their teething discomfort away. It also helps their overall dental health.
Carrots are not only good for young puppies, but they are also great edible chew toys for large dogs.
Incorporating carrots into your dog’s regular diet also brings a lot of health benefits. Carrots are a great source of potassium, fiber, and Vitamin A. These vitamins are essential to a dog’s overall health and can help build their health system for a healthier lifestyle and a longer lifespan.
Ideally, it is best to serve your dog’s raw carrots – sliced according to your dog’s size. Slicing is a great way to ensure that the carrots will not be a choking hazard for your dog. Before giving your dogs raw carrots, make sure to wash them thoroughly and peel off the skin to make sure there are no pesticides and dirt left.
You can also choose to cook the carrots if you want your dogs to have a softer treat. Just make sure you do not add any oils or seasonings for flavor as these could be dangerous to your dog’s health. A simple boiling or steaming process should suffice.
If you are adding carrots to your dog’s regular diet, we also suggest mixing diced carrots or pureeing them and adding them to your dog’s food.
But however, you slice and/or dice them you can feel good about feeding your dog something that’s really terrific for their health!
