Do Not Feed Your Dog A Vegan Diet, What Dogs Eat Is Meat

Dogs Are Carnivores

I am very concerned after reading so many peoples websites or blogs, that tell you dogs are omnivores. A tiny amount of a dogs diet is grass. Not apples, carrots, peas, sweet potatoes, blueberries, cranberries, brown rice, oatmeal or any other vegetable or fruit matter you can think of that is not grass.

You are the intended target of the dog food companies marketing campaigns, Not your dog. That is the reason behind so many (what we think anyway) yummy ingredients being prominently listed in their dog food advertising programs.

I know you really love your dog but you are not doing him/her any favors by feeding a vegetarian or vegan diet.

So please do not feed your dog a diet that does not contain a meat protein. Regardless of your own personal beliefs on eating meat. We have herbivore teeth, your dog has carnivore teeth.

SEE THE MEAT

Meat eaters have tearing and ripping teeth ( Fangs- Canine Teeth) and sharp (Pre-molars- Carnassial Teeth) .

“Important teeth for carnivorans are the large, slightly recurved canines, used to dispatch prey, and the carnassial complex, used to rend meat from bone and slice it into digestible pieces. Dogs have molar teeth behind the carnassials for crushing bones”  (wikipedia)

Thank you

The Spirit Dog

P.S. Every type of vegetable or fruit I mentioned, your dogs can eat. But meat is the main thing.
