Yes! Carrots are a healthy snack for humans and dogs, and a great substitute for traditional dog treats. They’re low in calories, high in fiber, and an excellent source of vitamin A and potassium. They can make for a cheap, nutritious chew toy, and can aid in dental health.
- Share plain, cooked carrots by adding them to your dog’s usual bowl of food or mixing them into a homemade meal with a grain, protein, and green vegetable.
- Share raw carrots periodically as a snack. Make sure the carrot stick is cut into manageable chunks to prevent choking.
- Share frozen carrots (sliced or diced) with teething puppies to soothe their gums.
