A diet tip for your German Shepherd Dog; add one to two ounces of cooked carrots to their diet daily. Carrots are rich in vitamins including Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate and Manganese, and a great source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Potassium. All these vitamins and nutrients are need for the daily maintenance and growth of your German Shepherd Dog.
Unfortunately, many dry-food dog formulas add refined sugars to their dry-food to make it more palatable to dogs, thus making the owners think it is a good food because their dog prefers it over dry-foods without added sugars. Refined sugars are very bad for dogs causing tooth decay, obesity, and potentially diabetes. However, the natural sugars found in carrots can sweeten and improve the palatability your wholesome dry-food.
Therefore improve the taste and health of your German shepherd Dog by adding one to two ounces of cooked carrots mixed well into the dinner. If you are going to cook your own carrots be sure and add the water you cooked the carrots in to the dry-food because most of the vitamins and nutrients will be found in the water.
