Can dogs eat carrots?

Yes. This bright orange root vegetable is dog-approved.

Carrots are a nutritional, low-calorie snack rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Because they can be hard to chew, it’s best to cut raw carrots into small pieces. You can also boil them so they're softer, or even mash them and add as a topper.
