Aren’t dogs grizzly carnivores — don’t they need meat to survive?

It’s a common misconception that dogs are carnivores but our poochie pals are actually omnivores! They can live off the same food as we do, whether that’s meat-based, fish-based, or plant-based recipes. Cool hey! 

A little background information for the doubtful doggie lovers out there. Dogs do descend from wolves. But — after millenia as our companions, by our campfires, and then in our homes — they evolved into very different animals. Because they no longer live in the wild, dogs now rely on us for their food. Before we began feeding them packaged dog food, they ate whatever we fed them — meat, fruits and veg too. So our furry friends can very happily thrive on veg!
