Can Dogs Eat Carrots? Can They Digest Them? Will They Eat Them?

A while ago, we found that our dog was passing whole carrots in her poop… so we seek some professional advice. Here’s a simple summary of what we learned about dogs eating carrots!

Carrots are a food that is very suitable for both humans and pet dogs. In fact, carrots are included in some commercial dog foods. This is because carrots contain almost no fat, which means they can also be an ideal option for senior dogs or overweight dogs. Additionally, while carrots do contain some sugar, it is not particularly high, making them a great nutritional supplement ingredient!

So can dogs eat carrots?

The answer is yes, they can!

Will eating carrots cause dogs to pass carrots in their poop?

Yes, it is possible because vitamin A in carrots is a fat-soluble vitamin that cannot dissolve in water. This means that if the carrot is not properly digested, the vitamin A will not be absorbed by the dog’s body.

How should you feed your dog carrots?

You can chop the carrots into a puree and mix them with oil before feeding them to your dog.

What not to do?

Don’t feed your dog carrots too often! Dogs can store vitamin A in their bodies, so frequent consumption can lead to vitamin A toxicity, which is a chronic condition that is difficult to detect.
