The cat is considered by scientists to be a strict carnivore and the dog is considered to be an omnivore. Both species are in the Class Mammalia and the Order Carnivora, but here's the difference: the cat cannot sustain its life unless it consumes meat in some form. Dogs, however, are able to survive on plant material alone; they do not have to consume meat. But always keep in mind that dogs do best and by nature are primarily meat-eaters. Just because by definition they are omnivores (can digest and utilize plant and animal food sources) does not mean that plant material alone makes a good source of nutrition for the dog. Far too many dogs have been undernourished by those cheap grain-based dog foods. And grain-based cat foods are even worse.More >
Sources and availability of different nutrients is key in the choosing right food for your dog. Pet foods vary in the quality of ingredients, formula and the nutritional value in the food. Premium and super premium pet foods typically have higher standards in each of these important variables.
Your pet’s nutritional needs are based on age, activity level, temperament, environment and physical make up. Look for a food that fits your pet and the environment rather than breed.
