Carrot Delight Dog Treat Recipe

What’s up, dog? Carrots aren’t just for rabbits—dogs love ’em, too.

Carrots aren’t just a side dish—they can also be used in dog treats. What makes carrot so delightful for dogs? This root veggie is complete with fiber, antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K and beta-carotene, all of which are part of a healthy, balanced diet. They also help keep skin and eyesight in tip-top shape. Plus, carrots are low in calories, making them a great addition as a main ingredient to a treat recipe.
