I know, it probably sounds like a silly question...but I give Mo lots of the baby carrots as cookies...we call them "carrot cookies". I just thought they say they are good for our eyes, are they good for Labs eyes? ;D

Rest in peace my Sweet Chocolate
I Love You and Miss You so much
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
I don't know if they are good for dogs' eyes but I do give the dogs carrots as treats. Usually I give them the large carrots, kind of a crunchy treat.

Carrots, green beans and apples are good additions to a dog's diet.
also what Gene said. our vet highly recommended all of these in the way of treats, especially for abbey who is a little "fluffy" and in need of weight loss. the vet said it fills them up and keeps them healthy.
Dogs don't have the right enzymes to digest raw vegetables, so the carrots will pass right through, and the nutrients won't be absorbed. If you cook them or put them in a blender, they can digest them. But raw carrots don't harm them and most dogs like them a lot.
I heard this too, but give Erns carrots as a fat free treat.Originally Posted by blaisberg

I heard that you need to be careful with carrots as they naturally contain sugar and they can increase the risk of diabetes in your dog. (I didn't hear it from a scientific source or first hand so I can't attest to the veracity of that rumour).
Modified to say Sam does get carrots, just not every day.
I give Rowan a carrot or two here and there.
Jonah doesn't like carrots. He spits them out! We try not to feed him any food other than his kibble for tummy issue reasons, but on occasion the kids drop food. Carrots are the one food I don't have to worry about a "leave it", as he won't bother anymore, and even if he does put it in his mouth, he spits it out!
