Dogs are carnivores, not omnivores, people

picture proof

Dogs are omnivores, people. They need vitamins from grains and certain vegetables. 
But, hey, let’s not trust people who went to school for animals.

-Dogs are carnivores. They have the stomach length and acidity (PH) of a carnivore. Their entire physiology is carnivorous; from their lack of grinding molars (omnivores/herbivores have these for plant material) to the lack of amylase in their saliva. Their jaws physically cannot even move side to side, nor can their pointed teeth crush plant material. Nor do they have the digestive enzymes required for digesting plant material. There are so many other physiological reasons but these are some of the main ones.

-The AAFCO decides the very nutrient requirement of dogs and the legal requirements of pet food companies. They clearly stated that dogs and cats do not need carbohydrates. Do you understand - even the AAFCO has said this. Dogs can get every single essential amino acid, vitamin and mineral from a raw diet that is done right (Prey Model). Carbohydrates such as vegetables are only in the food because they are required for the mixture stability, and because they are dirt cheap. Note that they make up around 50% of the majority of dry pet foods and are inflammatory, too high in omega 6, and linked to various illness (small bowel disease, cancer, periodontal disease-often leading to organ failure, diabetes, etc etc for miles).

-Vets are great at what they do, but they get very little nutritional training and when they do it is usually influenced by major brands such as Science Diet or Royal Canin. This is a highly intelligent marketing plan, as they target vets during vet school knowing that they may one day recommend their products to clients.

I’d even go as far as to say that a large chunk of my followers understand basic carnivore digestion and nutrient requirements better than the average vet. Thankfully there is a growing number of vets that are very knowledgeable in carnivore nutrition, and do not align themselves with food companies.

-If you own your own carnivores I would highly recommend searching ‘Dr Karen Becker’ on Youtube and learning a thing or two about carnivore nutrition. It is actually quite interesting, and most people notice significant changes in their pets overall health, mobility, teeth, and attitude. I often compare dry pet food to a human eating junk food along with a synthetic vitamin pill, so that they get the right ‘balance’. This is essentially what many pet food brands are doing.

I’ve noticed a lot of people confuse the fact that just because they can eat something does not mean they need to eat it. 

Dogs, like may other canids evolved the ability to eat things like grains, fruits and vegetables to get them through tough times and avoid starvation, or simply because they like the taste. That does not mean that they require them or that it should be a significant part of their diet. Dogs are carnivores first and foremost.

"But, hey, let’s not trust people who went to school for animals."
Yes, let’s not. Let’s not trust the people who are sponsered and paid to convince you to put your pets on the diets they provide that is generally pretty bad: http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-food-reviews/hills-science-diet-grain-free/


Look in your dogs mouth, open it up, check out his teeth. Do you see any flat, grinding teeth like that of a horse? No? Can’t be a herbivore then. Do you see any teeth that look semi-flat like ours, or like that of a bear or raccoon? No? Not an omnivore. What do you see? You see sharp, bladed teeth that are jagged, used for cutting raw meat, you do not see the teeth of an animal that would need to graze on grass and berries in the wild to survive.

The myth that dogs are omnivores come from biologists witnessing wolves pulling the innards of a deer away from it’s body, they assumed the wolves were doing this to eat the grass inside the stomach, when they were actually just eating the stomach itself. Veterinarians and pet food companies then took it from there and started encouraging people to feed their pets diets with “wholesome grains”. “Hey, if it’s good for us, it must be good for our pets!”


Using your vet example, here’s a vet telling people why they should feed their pets raw meat:

Newton’s third law says that forces come in equal and opposite pairs. This means that when air exerts lift on an airplane, the airplane also exerts a downward force on the air. This is clear in the image above, which shows a an A380 prototype launched through a wall of smoke. When the model passes, air is pushed downward. The finite size of the wings also generates dramatic wingtip vortices. The high pressure air on the underside of the wings tries to slip around the wingtip to the upper surface, where the local pressure is low. This generates the spiraling vortices, which can be a significant hazard to other nearby aircraft. They are also detrimental to the airplane’s lift because they reduce the downwash of air. Most commercial aircraft today mitigate these effects using winglets which weaken the vortices’ effects. (Image credit: Nat. Geo./BBC2)
