She loves to chew on fingers.She has lots of chew toys and healthy chew sticks but when i offered her a cold baby carrot she loved it and eats it slowly.Are these carrots ok for her? I know they are fine for adult dogs.

I use baby carrots all the time and my labs tolerate them well. When I go do pet therapy visits I cut the baby carrots into carrot strings an use them for the folks who want to give them a treat... less fattening and they can hold the very end allowing the dogs to take the treat extra gentle since they can't sink their teeth into them. I eat a carrot stick when I want them to look at me and focus - it's like they are wondering where did it go!!!

Having a baby carrot should be ok for your puppy. The cold is what makes her teeth/gums feel better. One thing that you can do is moisten a washcloth, give it a slight wring, and put it in the freezer. Once frozen, give it to your puppy. Of course, you may want to be sure that she is not on a surface that would be ruined if a few drops of water get on it. It's an old trick, but it works quite well.
