Cats are obligate carnivores. Dogs are omnivores, but opportunistic carnivores. Dogs are more omnivorous than cats because of their ancestral tendencies to be more scavengers than hunters. Since cats were 99.9% hunters, that is why they evolved to be obligate carnivores. High protein dog foods are ...

My dog loves it, but I have to limit how much she gets, one because shes on prescription food for allergies, and two ...

Oh for sure, any animal eating anything will gain weight if it isnt properly exercised. I sort of assume that if someone is going to go the lengths to learn proper diet for their animal they will also learn to look after it properly. I always assume for the better though uck. Excercise is important...

I don't know if I am going to word this right but the when a dog eats raw meat there is a lot of moisture in it and once you take the moisture out and have the dry matter the protein is a lot less. But, the problem in dry dog food with high protein levels is there is not a lot of moisture. Maybe so...

YES, protein can turn into fat!!! Protein is made up of many different types of amino acids. A large percentage of those amino acids are converted to sugar (is it the Krebs cycle or the other one from biochemistry?) when the body does not use them in their natural form. Once converted to sugar, if ...

Unless, the dog already has kidney issues high protein doesn't affect anything. It is a big myth that has gone around the forums for awhile now.

Re:

Your husband is absolutely right. Too much protein is not good either. Once the body used his share of protein it will use the excess as an energy fuel. If there is nothing happening that would burn up the energy the body will store it as fat. If you exercise your dog on a regular basis you don't h...

They bought it out a few months ago, about the same time they introduced the Small Breed and Large Breed formulas. Don't worry, they won't change the ingredients. How can you can guarantee thst.
