Carob is fine for dogs. I'm sure it should be fed to them the same way we'd eat chocolate, as a treat, and not to let them gorge themselves on it. Cody has some kind of "Carob Cherubs", they're small cookies made with eggs, unsalted margarine, fructose, egg, carob powder, and cinnamon. And I know I've bought other things for him that have carob in them. He's still living and breathing, so I'm sure it's fine!
I think Erin knows chocolate's not good for dogs, which is why she's asking for carob recipes. Of which, I don't have any. But Joe from Culinary in the Desert/Country does, I think! Maybe he'll chime in.
