Carbs for dogs?
« on: August 10, 2017, 10:15:55 pm »
https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/canine-corner/201707/have-dogs-specifically-evolved-eat-bread-and-pasta

..........The raw meat and bones diet is based on the hypothesis that dogs and wolves are genetically the same and have the same physiology. The data from this current investigation shows that that hypothesis is wrong. The data collected here confirms that there are significant genetic differences between dogs and wolves in important areas. The simplest way to summarize this is to say that dogs are not wolves and therefore designing regimes of any sort, whether dietary or behavourial, based on what we know about wolves is wrong. The most important example of the difference between dogs and wolves which is demonstrated by this current research is that dogs have special digestive equipment for handling carbohydrates which wolves do not..............
