    Baby Carrots okay for dogs?

    I'm eating baby carrots and I wanted to give Jack one. Are they okay for dogs?

    Yep! Not much nutritional value, but nothing negative. My dogs love them as snacks. I know some people freeze them to get the best of both worlds for low-cal treats.

    My dog didn't like them raw. I had to boil them a bit to get them nice and soft then they loved them!

    Cooper loved baby carrots while he was teething. Celery too. Not so much anymore though.

    I have YET to find a fruit or vegetable Kylie isn't nuts over. Apparently she's particularly fond of mandarin oranges and cantaloupe.

    He didn't end up eating it. I'll try boiled next time.

    Sure! My dogs eat carrots. As a matter of fact every "barn dog" (dogs that hang around horse barns, which include mine) I've ever known eats carrots, no problems. They also eat horse poop and hoof trimmings, no problems there either .

    As others have said, carrots are fine and can be a healthy treat.

    Some dogs love carrots so much they will still them from unknown sources. lol. One day I was hiking with my dog and he ate some grass and then drank a bunch of water and then threw up. What amazed me is it seemed like there were 5 or 6 baby carrots in there. I hadn't fed him any. Hadn't had any in the house. Hadn't been hanging around any barns. I have no clue where he got them and he never would tell me.

    Yep, they are fine. Alannah always gets excited when I give her one, but then she chews it into pieces and leaves it on the floor. Brat

    Re: Baby Carrots okay for dogs?

    Oh yes perfectly okay! My dog Pirate would choose a carrot over a hotdog, we tried this once, he carried the hotdog around in the tips of his teeth and just kept looking up at me like "What am I supossed to do with this" lol. Pulled out a carrot and the hotdog was left on the floor completely whole. lol.

    My aunts vet also recommended carrots and green beans for her overweight dogs as a snack instead of the regular dog snacks.

    @CptJack - Pls look up dogs and citrus fruit. I seem to remember reading something about that?

    I had a JRT that adored oranges. He would tree the highest fruit on the tree, catch and kill it and eat the innards. Same for apples which are also not on the suggested list of dog treats. I doubt dogs ever crack the seeds of apples open and eat them but never offered a core to him nevertheless.

    I give my dog a few different kinds of raw veggies as treats if he's behaving while I cook dinner (typically little bits of broccoli, carrots, or green beans). He doesn't love them, but he takes them and comes back for more. lol

    Yeah there is no harm in it unless Jack likes it. Most of the dogs like it.
