too many carrots bad .....?
Trying to keep our overweight dogs on a strict diet but they get SO hungry!!(but they are losing some weight & look great) They love raw carrots & cabbage which they get a lot of now to kinda fill the empty bellies while on a diet but I was wondering if they can get too many carrots & thus too much of the vitamin in carrots? Can't tell if the whites of their eyes are getting yellow! They each (a German Shepherd & three Min-Pins)get maybe a BIG carrot cut in chunks a day) I'm thinking of planting a row of carrots in the garden for them & let them dig their own! The vet said to also give them canned green beans but they won't eat them nor celery or raw potatoes. They can tell (hear) when I am chopping cabbage & all come running to me for hand-outs! They are on 'Iam's' blue bag of dry food for overweight/adult dogs .... does anyone have a favorite brand? 'Pedigree' has always given our Shepherds diarrhea.
