Raw food diet for dogs

While dogs are omnivores and can therefore eat both plants and animals, they do tend to have a bias towards being carnivorous. Evolving from wolves, modern day dogs have teeth and digestive systems that confirm their carnivorous origins. You could say that a dog’s health appears to be optimised by eating meat.

The raw diet for dogs is all about emulating the diet of the dog’s natural ancestors. This style of feeding raw food to dogs has shot to popularity thanks to the attributable health benefits.
