Are Dogs Carnivores or Omnivores?
This is probably the biggest topic of discussion online. Most of the commercial kibble companies want dogs to be classified as omnivores and since they train most veterinaries they too promote this and by doing that they go against the scientific classification:
We need to acknowledge that it is scientifically proven that dogs are carnivores. I get email daily saying I’m wrong. I ask for proof that I am and I never get any. The ones benefitting (financially) from dogs being omnivores are promoting this heavily these days.
I wish they were omnivores it would be easier to feed them and cheaper too. But I can’t do that to my dogs. I know feeding a carnivore like an omnivore is cruel. Yes, they seem to like it, but many like junk food too. The question is; is it beneficial to their health? I’m convinced it will hurt them in the long run, shorten their lives and promote chronic diseases.
