Olewo carrots and beets and pumpkin!

We moved in August have the itchies, too. A veterinary derm told me to go look for local raw honey. I actually found some at the local farmer's market and am giving Hans a teeny bit at each meal.

I had also run out of Carmen's Feedsentials when the itching began, so it could be that, too.

A lot of showline people use it and it originated in Germany. I find it gives the coat a vibrant, rich color. Coat also comes in very thick and luxurious. I really like the product. You can buy it at www.olewousa.com or Amazon.
Do you soak the carrots first or can they be fed dry?

Ideally, soak for 5 minutes in a little water and add a bit of sunflower oil for good absorption. Instructions on the package.

You must soak the carrots first. They are dehydrated and require water to hydrate. One tablespoon of dry carrots will turn into 1/2 cup when moist. If you do not soak the carrots, they will cause gastrointestinal discomfort because the carrots will start to hydrate in the GI tract and also will not be able to digest properly. Beets can be fed dry, but I soak that as well.
