Default Carrots

I just discovered Frankie loves raw carrots. I dropped one while cooking and he ate it up. I've read online that fresh veggies are good for dogs but I wanted some forum opinions I figure it cold hard carrots probably feel good on his teeth too.

Daisy and Duke LOOOOOOVE their baby carrots!!! I give it to them as a treat, I usually have them in the freezer, rinse them out a bit then give it to them. Especially in the summertime when it is hot, it is very refreshing to them. They also love fresh fruit like bananas and apples and every once in a while, I will give them a pineapple chunk.

Awesome. I'll keep giving them to him
as a treat too. Probably better then other packaged stuff at the pet store. And since he's teething it's a way better option then my furniture lol

I ran across a list somewhere that said apples and stonefruits like peaches, cherries, etc. were toxic to dogs/cats. However, the way it was worded it was talking about pits/seeds, leaves, stems and it wasn't clear if that included the flesh as well. Here's the list I found (don't remember the site now)............ (Bruno does like carrot though, he's had a couple pieces so far)

Known Food Toxins To Dogs
Fruits, Vegetables, Food

Apple, Almond, Apricot, Peach, Wild Cherries, Plum, Balsam Pear, Prunes and similar fruit: Diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, (Stem, Seeds and Leaves) The seeds of most fruits contain cyanide, which is poisonous to dogs as well as humans.

Avocados: The fruit, pit and plant are all toxic. They can cause difficulty breathing and fluid accumulation in the chest, abdomen and heart

Broccoli: reported to be pretty potent gastrointestinal irritant

Cherry: rapid breathing, shock, mouth inflammation, heart rate increase

Chocolate: seizures, coma, hyperactivity, rapid heart beat, tremors, death. Bakers chocolate is the most dangerous. A dog can consume milk chocolate and appear to be fine because it is not as concentrated but is still very dangerous.
1 oz per lb of body weight for (2 oz per kg) of body weight for bakers chocolate
1 oz per 3 lbs of body weight (1 oz per 1.5 kg body weight) for semi-sweet chocolate
1 oz per 9lbs of body weight (1 oz per 4 kg) for bakers chocolate
Please keep in mind that these are only guidelines, and if you suspect your pet had ingested chocolate, please keep an eye out for ANY signs of poisoning! Every dog reacts differently to quantity.
Coffee/Tea: Drinks/Foods: containing caffeine or sugar may cause many of the same symptoms chocolate causes

Cooked Bones: uncooked bones should be safe but if they are cooked you should refrain because they deteriorate and easily splinter. Can cause extensive damage to internal organs and passage ways, may times resulting in death.

Mushrooms: acute gastric effects, liver and kidney damage, abdominal pain, nausea, salivation, vomiting

Nutmeg: tremors, seizures and death

Tobacco: nausea, salivation, vomiting, tachycardia (rapid heartbeat)

Onion: (cats are more sensitive), gastrointestinal upset, hemolytic anemia, heinz body anemia, hemogloinria, destroys red blood cells

Grapes, Raisins, Prunes: kidney failure, as little as a single serving of grapes or raisins can kill a dog. It takes anywhere from 9 oz to 2 lbs of grapes and raisins (between .041 and 1.1 oz/kg of body weight), to cause severe vomiting and diarrhea, and possible kidney failure

Salt: excessive intake can cause kidney problems

Raw Eggs- many people feed raw eggs to their dogs but keep in mind that they can contain salmonella. Dogs do have a higher immunity against salmonella poisoning but are not immune and have been reported to get it from uncooked eggs.

They are talking about the apple seeds. The apple itself is ok given in moderation. They maybe get a slice that I share when I am eating. It does contain a lot of sugar so it has to be given in moderation. Pineapple is actually pretty good to mix in the food if your dog has the habit of eating their poop. But like anything else, it has very high sugar so it has to be monitored.

Are Apples Bad For Dogs?

Got it. I kinda thought that was the case, but wasn't sure. As you saw, the wording on that article I found was pretty confusing. I'm assuming the peaches and such are probably similar, don't feed the pits.

I used to give Maggie and Mongo frozen carrots when they were teething.
They still get carrots from time to time- they both like them.

We gave Pheona a bite of carrot before & she'd carry it around the house, not eating it. She does love bananas as does Murphy & they didn't mind apples. We give them in moderation cause of the sugar.
