These carrot brothsicle frozen dog treats are easy to make and only require 2 simple ingredients making them a great treat for dogs with allergies or food sensitivities.
Carrots and bone are the only ingredients you need.
If you don’t have bone broth on hand you can substitute with water or low-sodium chicken/beef broth (minus the onions).
I used chicken bone broth but if your dog is allergic to chicken you can definitely substitute with beef, bison, turkey or whatever bone broth works for your dog!
Before we get to the super simple directions, let’s go over why carrots and bone broth make great ingredients for these frozen dog treats.
Are Carrots Good For Dogs?
If you’re wondering if dogs can have carrots, the answer is yes!
Most dogs can consume a small number of carrots without any issues at all.
Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, potassium, beta-Carotene, fiber and other awesome vitamins.
Raw and cooked carrots are healthy options for dogs and make a nutritious add-in to meals AND crunching on carrots can also help improve your dog’s dental health.
If you’re wondering how many carrots are safe to give your dog, we suggest speaking with your veterinarian to determine what is a safe amount for their weight and diet.
Is Bone Broth Good For Dogs?
In short, yes!
Bone broth is excellent for most dogs although it’s always best to check with your veterinarian before adding any new foods to your dog’s diet especially if they have any allergies or GI issues.
Bone broth encourages a healthy gut which can help to improve your dog’s digestion, but it doesn’t stop there!
Bone broth also strengthens joints and reinforces your dog’s immune system.
It’s packed full of important nutrients and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, iron, copper and collagen.
You can make your own homemade bone broth or you can purchase store-bought bone broth for dogs at many pet retailers.
I buy Primal Bone Broth from a local pet store.
