Carrots are an excellent source of natural nutrition and offer amazing health benefits for dogs!

Why are Carrots good for Dogs?
It is good to add vegetables to your dog's diet because they contain many health-promoting nutrients from a natural source. Many of those nutrients are the ones that are often lacking in commercial dog foods, and natural source vitamins are much more effective than synthetic vitamins.
The carrot is the king of all vegetables because it is the richest source of beta-carotene (pro-vitamin A). Beta carotene is also a powerful antioxidant. Carrots provide a great source of fiber, contain excellent amounts of vitamin B group factors, vitamins C, D, E and other nutrients such as calcium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium and much more.

Carrots contain cellulose, which cannot be digested by dogs. Dogs may enjoy eating raw carrots, but the chewed pieces simply pass through their digestive system with the nutrients not absorbed. If you take a close look, you can see the pieces in the dog's poop just the way they were swallowed.
One of the most valuable ingredients in carrots is the beta-carotene which converts to vitamin A in the dog's body and delivers many of the health benefits. Beta-carotene however is sensitive to light and heat. Carrots are at the peak of their nutritional level at the time of harvest, and the exposure to light after harvest causes carrots to loose valuable beta-carotene. Depending on how fresh the carrots are when they are bought, they may already have low levels of beta-carotene. If the carrots are then exposed to heat during cooking, more of the valuable beta-carotene and other nutrients will be destroyed.
Carrots in other Pet Products
Now that we know the valuable nutrients in carrots are not only sensitive to light, but also to heat, it explains why carrots as an ingredient in pet food won't deliver much benefit. Kibble as well as canned dog foods are highly processed and cooked at high temperatures that destroys the beta-carotene and other nutrients. Freeze-dried or dehydrated chunks of carrots added to some dog foods, or found in vegetable dog food mixes, are typically too big and therefore won't be digested properly to absorb the nutrients. Some carrot products are also offered in powder form, either as a supplement, sprinkle-on, or in vegetable dog food mixes. This is also not the ideal form because with powder, the entire surface gets exposed to light and air, and as a result, the valuable beta-carotene will only be retained for a certain period of time.
