Feeding Your Canine Companion
History - Dogs are carnivores-they evolved over 14,000 years eating primarily meat. On their own, they are opportunistic and will also occasionally eat small amounts of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and berries. A dog's anatomy is such that the primary protein source has always been, and still is-meat.
