Have you ever seen your dog eat grass?
Have you ever tossed a cheeseburger to a stray dog, to which the dog ate it, bun and all?
Dogs are Omnivores.
Not only are seeds, plants, fruits, and veggies tolerable for dogs, but dogs actually need these foods in order to get all of their essential daily vitamins and minerals.
If you see your dog eating grass, chances are s/he has a nutrient deficiency, and your dog is instinctively trying to "fill the gaps" in his/her diet.
You see, dogs need to eat a variety of foods in order to diversify their gut biomes, which in turn helps to break down and metabolize food, giving dog's bodies the ability fight off bacteria and infection. Without variety, immune systems get weak and the inflammation process escalates rapidly.
Why Not Just Meat?
The truth of the matter is, meat has become a very commercial product. When wolves bring down deer in Yellowstone, they eat the liver as a good source of Iron and Magnesium. The deer ate fresh, untouched, wild grass for the entirety of its life, and so the deer liver is clean and beneficial for the wolf.
However, if you were to pick up a cow liver from the butcher shop and cut it open, the smell alone will tell you it's not good for the dog. Antibiotics, hormones, stress, fertilizer on the grass the cow ate, etc. are all toxins that build up in the liver, and thus get passed on to your dog.
Clean meats are great for dogs, but meat today doesn't hold the nutritional value of meat in the past. By combining seeds, fruits, vegetables, and some grains, our meals help your dog "fill in the nutritional gaps," and be the best that they can be.
