If you’re a seasonal shopper you know that the freshest fruits and berries are showing up at a farmer’s market near you. However, Best Bully Sticks wants to hang on to those last few ground root veggies that are fixing to pass out of season! Lettuce, potatoes, radishes, onions and best of all: carrots! Carrots are a wonderful source of vitamins and minerals not only for you, but for your dog. Carrots are chock-full of beta-carotene, which is transferred into Vitamin A once consumed. Vitamin A supports health vision, skin, hair, bone development and can even be a cancer preventative.
Here’s a great recipe to treat your dog to some yummy and healthy carrots! The carrots paired with tasty chicken, honey and parsley, you’re dog is sure to drool over this one! Thanks to Doggy Dessert Chef for another great recipe contribution!
