Serious deficiencies in Beta-Carotene & Vitamin A may lead to degraded night vision, poor skin quality and abnormal development in the bones, teeth, and reproductive system. The brilliant gold, orange, purple and white color found in potatoes is due to its presence Beta-Carotene, which dogs are able to then convert into Vitamin A.
