Ingredient Spotlight: Carrots

By: Karina Delaine

Can you feed your carrots to your pet? The answer is yes! They’re a crunchy snack for dogs and cats in their natural state, and they’re also great to include in their meals due to their amazing benefits.

 

Carrots are high in antioxidant Beta-Carotene and Vitamin A, which supports eye health for your pet. Lack of this vitamin can ultimately lead to eye infections, diseases or vision loss over time. They are also high in fiber but low in fat and calories, making it a good choice of overweight dogs or those of old age. Vitamin A will also help promote better skin and coat health.

 

Carrots also contain excellent amounts of the Vitamin B group, Vitamins C, D, E, K, and other nutrients such as calcium, manganese, potassium and more.
