Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr Altman and happy to assist you both today!

I also have two Chi's and feed carrots every day :)

With her size I would advise only half a carrot daily. I feed my big chewer the bigger half while my littler girl gets the smaller half. This way it is not as filling so they still want to ear their meals and also not terribly binding nor changing sugar levels too much

I think it is great you are being proactive with carrots as a filler but great also for dental disease prevention!

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both tonight!
