Olewo carrots?

Ok so I've read a lot about olewo carrots for dogs. I've read about the benefits of better poop, shiny coat and increase in the dogs pigment. Is this stuff true? And does anyone have pictures of dogs before and after they started giving their dogs olewo carrots? Thanks a lot.

No, never heard of them until now. I did look them up, they just seem to be dehydrated carrots that have to be soaked first. So, why not just give grated raw carrots instead, be cheaper and less work, as you can buy the grated carrots. For a supplement instead, I would give the Omega 3 fish capsules - that would help the coat, digestion, and the bones. I give my Sting Nordic Naturals Omega 3 Pet soft gels.

You probably read some of my reviews
I love Olewo - great product. Don't have before/after (been lazy about getting pictures up until now), but will some comparisons for the new pup in a month or so - just started her on it. Here are some of my dogs that have or are using Olewo now:













It does not change color. Just enhances what is already present. I do carrots and red beets - good stuff. Lasts forever and very cost effective. All dogs here are/were on grain free or raw.

Solid Gold - if you still want him on puppy chow: their Wolfcub, otherwise WolfKing or one of the others. My Sting loves their Barking at the Moon. Oh, and for those carrots, I did read on Amazon they are supposed to be soaked in oil (like salmon oil), that could be what is giving the coat shine .

I've also been curious about Olewo. Since they're dehydrated, do you know what the sugar content is?

Sugar content will be whatever the content of a half cup (1 serving is usually a tblsp dry which makes 1/2 cup hydrated) of raw ground carrots would be - Olewo is preserved through dehydration from fresh carrots and contain no additives.

Thanks! I knew there weren't any additives but wasn't sure if the recommended serving was more than I was comfortable feeding in a day.

Do you recommend their dehydrated beets as well?

I have fed both for many years. Wonderful. Will darken pigment. Do not feed to a white dog
