NutritionA quick check inside a dog’s mouth reveals that they have both molars and incisors, which means they are omnivores.
Dogs can get nearly all their nutritional needs from fats and proteins, but as any dog owner with a compost pile will tell you, their four-legged family member will always look to self-supplement their diet with various fruits, vegetables and grains. Even in the wild, a dog’s closest relative and ancestral forefather the wolf will often search out plant-based foods to add to the protein-rich diet of a top predator.
From fats, proteins and amino acids to D, E and B vitamins and a host of minerals such as Magnesium, zinc and phosphorus, your dog’s health depends on balancing his diet so that he can be everything you want in a good friend and companion.
The best place to get advice about what to feed your dog is from your breeder and your veterinarian. They will always look at factors such as breed, age, lifestyle and overall health before making any recommendations.
