Carrot Eating Dog

Okay, yesterday we witnessed a rabbit eating a bunch of salad. Which of course makes sense, but, a dog eating baby carrots? No! Actually, yes! Take a look:

Very cute! Our dog LOVES carrots too. Carrots are one of her favorite rewards for tricks. She also loves (and I mean loves) watermelon. Other favorites include berries, apples, bananas, lettuce, vegetable stir-fry, beans, and the list goes on and on.

Carrots are one of my dog's favorite treats--she begs for them. She also loves cooked broccoli, raw cabbage, and assorted other veggies. She's a real eat to live devotee!

I love the bunny videos, too.

Our Yorkie and Morkie (Maltese-Yorkie) love carrots...so much so that when we bought a stuffed carrot as a toy we had to call it a "root" because every time we said carrot the pups would run to the refrigerator. They also love canteloupe.

I am a Veterinary Nurse. I give my dog a raw carrot every day, but this week he has had extra. A client with a pony said they can change there behaviour+ make them naughty?
Is there any proof /reason for this

My dogs love carrots. Whenever I make carrot juice, I put the leftover carrot pulp in their food and they can't get enough! The fiber is awesome, too. It's great prevention against having to express their anal glands.

When my dalmatian got a little heavy after being fixed, his vet put him on a diet. To keep his hunger under control, the vet suggested that I give my dog low calorie treats such as a raw carrot or a cup of steamed green beans between meals. He loves them and after 8 months on the diet he is now back to his slender self. He also loves slices of apple or dried apple rings, bananas and, oddly, seedless watermelon. He also loves a little olive oil drizzled over his kibble which seems to reduce his summertime scratching and shedding.

Always check for toxicity before giving anything new to your dog, and always give in small amounts at first to avoid adverse reactions.
