Are carob buttons ok?

Hi, I know that you're not supposed to give dogs chocolate, but are carob buttons ok? Only as an extra special treat, of course!

The issue with chocolate is theobromine. Carob contains theobromine but in much smaller quantities (somewhere similar or lower than white chocolate). So a dog would have to ingest a large quantity to have a problem. I see carob on hand baked dog treats at local pet boutiques. Based on that, I think probably a small amount infrequently wouldn't be a problem.

For me personally though, I probably wouldn't give it to MY dogs…that is just me.
