Go ahead and pluck some carrots from your salad to share, just as long as tomatoes stay on your plate.

Carrots are low in calories and high in vitamins, making them a healthy treat. Just make sure to keep an eye on your snacking pup, as carrots are a choking hazard.
(Even though carrots are generally safe for dogs, always consult your vet before introducing a new food to their diet.)
Not all “safe” foods are good for your dog to eat as is — make sure each bite is appropriately prepared (pay attention to cooking instructions, seasonings and ingredients) before treating your pup.
If at any point your dog negatively reacts to something they’ve eaten, call your vet or poison control immediately.
Don’t rely on these foods to improve your dog’s health without your vet’s guidance.
