While the majority of us peruse the pet aisles aimlessly searching for the best dog treats to purchase, some of us are able to do a one-stop shop in the produce section. Though not popular with every dog, baby carrots are a good substitution for commercial treats. This option is especially suitable for dogs that have weight issues, and like any other reward moderation is a good rule to follow. In addition to being fat free, these sweet, crunchy snacks are also great for your dog's teeth. Eating healthy is just as important for dogs and this tasty treat is something you and your dog can enjoy together. So the next time the two of you get the urge for an afternoon snack, remember that a carrot a day can keep the vet away!
