I said what I meant and I meant what I said.




I am just speaking from my years of wisdom and my associates words of wisdom. She founded the non profit animal adoption organization I foster under and she and I are both in agreement with the fact that grains have no use in canine or feline diet other than to cause hot spots and allergies.

Dogs are omnivores, they love oats, and carrots and apples and well, you get it. They love meat too, but they are not carnivores. =)

Ok moving on.. Im slicing up some fresh corn on the cob for my dog.

Thank you, Laki and Teeney. I saw an episode of Animal Cops on Animal Planet where this woman was feeding her cats nothing but rice. They got sick and suffered from vitamin deficiency. I have heard more people tell me that their vets told them they should feed their dogs veggies like carrots, sweet potatoes, asparagus and green beans. I don't think it would be good to strictly feed nothing but vegetables. Just like bettas can't, or shouldn't live solely on bloodworms. I also petsat for a dog that was put on a chicken, rice and vegetable diet recommended by their vet.

You can argue that dogs are in fact oportunistic carnivores, in that meat is their #1 food source but will eat plant matter when they are not able to access meat. But that doesnt mean that plant matter should be a major staple of their diet.
