Unless you actually 'juice', these vegetables, they do absolutely, positively nothing for your dog. In fact, you are throwing your money out the window entirely.

Dogs have small small digestive system too and will poop the veggies right out unless they're juiced or cut into to very tiny pieces . The carrots could steamed until very soft that mash up .
