Puppies and adult dogs require very different things from their diet and care. The age at which your puppy becomes an adult dog will depend on their breed and size. All breeds are categorized into five sizes of dog: x-small, small, medium, large and giant. Your puppy will become an adult dog at the following ages: X-small breed (up to 9 lbs): eight months Small breed (9-22 lbs): 10 months Medium breed (23-55 lbs): 12 months Large breed (56-97 lbs): 15 months Giant breed (98 lbs and up): 18 to 24 months

Can dogs eat carrots?

User Avatar
yes. Raw and cooked carrots are healthy options for dogs and make a nutritious add-in to meals. While carrots are generally safe, it is important to cut whole carrots and even carrot sticks into bite-size chunks before feeding them to your dog. As a result, you will prevent choking, especially in small dogs
