Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

The following is an extract from a question on Dogster where the qustion raised was "Can eating carrots improve your dogs eyesight?"

Quote :
There is, however, such a thing as having too much vitamin A in the diet. Dogs that have too much in their diet (hypervitaminosis) can develop bone problems and muscle weakness. Thankfully, reaching a toxic level of vitamin A would require a very high dose over a long period of time, and giving your dog a few carrots now and again isn’t going to come close to providing an overdose. If you do choose to give your dog carrots as an occasional treat, it's best to cut them up into small enough pieces to reduce the risk of choking or gastrointestinal discomfort.

... and was the only thing I saw that indicated any negative to feeding your dog carrots.  Of course, eating too much anything may cause problems:

  1. Too many carrots may cause a change in your dogs color ( for real! Smile )
  2. The amount of dietary fiber may produce other results that you might find unnaceptable

However, I think it safe to say that the number of carrots to produce a change in color is ridiculously high and you'll just have to experiment to see how your dog handles the fiber content.
Remember that while dogs, unlike cats, can digest some vegetables that they'll gain little nutritive value from the vegetables. Vegans who try to change their dogs diet to a vegetarian one are doing their pets a major disservice - imho!
So, to answer your specific question, a handful of "baby carrots" or a handful of cut up carrot(s) shouldn't be a problem, even every day - now a few bags of carrots a day for years just might be.

Awesome, thanks for the replies all - very helpful. I will vary as to not exaggerate with just one type of treat - which is why I tried carrot in the first place actually. Will try apples and watermelon in small pieces next.
