    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Maybe you all know this but maybe some don't, I found out about ten years ago by running out of 'treats' for my dogs, that carrots are a great healthy substitute for treats.

    My dog loves carrots. She will do anything for a carrot! She usually gets one a day and I feel so much better giving her that than a pet treat. Does anyone know of other vegetables that are good for dogs to eat?
