As all Moms and Dads who have done their research will know, pups are omnivorous. However, they do best on meat, and in fact require eating meat in order to thrive and be truly healthy and happy.
This is because meat carries with it important enzymes and nutrients that are essential to a pup’s physical and neurological health, and you can’t find these nutrients and enzymes in vegetables.
That being said, it does mean that while pups don’t truly have the digestive tract to properly digest vegetable substances, you can still give them vegetables and fruits as treats! Just make sure that the snacks you give your pups are safe for them to eat – fruits such as grapes can be toxic to your pups.
In this video, this elderly Golden Retriever is having a wonderful time munching away on an assortment of fruits and vegetables. It is just an adorable sight to see!
