The short answer is “YES.” Carrots are low calorie, low in fat and a great antioxidant. Feeding your dog carrots in moderation is actually healthy and a great substitite for high calorie dog treats which may have no nutritional value in them.
It’s a good idea to start your dog off eating small amounts of carrots as a puppy so he becomes familiar with the texture and flavor at a young age. Sometimes it’s difficult to get older dogs into the “carrot eating habit.”
Many dog owners use small pieces of carrots as training treats. Large dogs can be given a whole carrot which may help with teeth cleaning as well. Because carrots are difficult for dogs to digest, you may see chunks of carrots in yours stool so you may want to consider grating or shredding carrots before giving them to your dog. You can also mix carrots into your dogs meals for extra nutitional value.
