Carrots

Carrots

Vegetables are an important component of the dog’s evolutionary diet. Carrots are a good source of vitamins A (and its precursor, beta carotene) and K especially, along with vitamin C, E and many of the B complex and biotin and some important minerals, including potassium, manganese and calcium. Carrots contain high quantities of the aptly named protective phytonutrient anti-oxidants ‘carotenoids’, which can help protect cells from ageing and damage. They are well known for their benefits in improving night vision, due to their beta-carotene (and vitamin A) content. Carrots also contain soluble and insoluble fibre, although a little less than the green leafy vegetables.
