    We've discovered that Chance just loves to eat a carrot! She sits there and crunches away and I'm sure they are probably better than most of the manufactured treats that she enjoys. Just thought I'd see if anyone else give them whole as a treat and if there is anything to worry about?!?!

    Cheers

    Carrots are fine for dogs. If she loves them go ahead.

    Great news - thanks everyone!

    She really seems to love eating them, although we are yet to find a food that Chance (or Chunks as she is now known!) does not like!

    Oh, and her eyesight can do with all the help it can get!!!!

    Properly frozen, although we only give him half at a time, and leave it out the freezer for a few mins before giving it to him (to make sure his tongue doesn't stick to it!)

    He's been having frozen ones since his big teeth started coming through - so from about 4ish months old.

    Carrots have a slight worming effect so are excellent, but interestingly dogs cannot digest them properly (unless pulped) so you will notice little orange bits in their poops!!:thumbup: I have to hide my horses feed when it's made up because the dogs will go and raid them for the carrots and apples!!!:rolleyes:
