Fact of the Day: Dog Food

While dogs belong to the biological order of Carnivora (which includes all canines, cats, bears, weasels, and others) despite the name they are not exclusively carnivores like wolves and cats. They can have a wide-range diet which often includes meat/animal-derived food but they also can healthily digest large amounts of vegetables and grains.

Hmmmm.... I am constantly struggling on what food I should give to Papi, my children wanted me to do wet food, like cook for him, but out of the pack food seems more workable for my schedule, that makes me guilty.

The contents in the cans of food for dogs is not all meat.
Dogs will lap up the leftovers from meals that we all eat.
Domestic cats will also.
It is good for them.
I believe that cats and dogs will chew green grass to clean their "toothy -pegs".
Surely you have seen them doing this on your garden lawns???
