Q:

Are carrots good for dogs?

A:

According to the ASPCA's web page on pet nutrition, carrot sticks are among the "people foods" that can be given to dogs as a nutritious treat. The website adds that any carrot given to a dog should be chopped up into bite-seized pieces.

According to Cesar's Way, carrots provide dogs with a low calorie way to get fiber and vitamin A. The Nest goes more in depth concerning the nutritional needs of dogs, observing that dogs cannot digest the cellulose found in plants and that a puree or baby food mixture is the best way for a dog to get the full benefits of a carrot.
