Canine Food Pyramid


"food pyramid" by TL

Notice that grains and dairy are not included in the pyramid. Neither are required by the dog, nutritionally. However, small amounts may be fed if the dog shows no allergy or intolerance towards the foods.

Fruit is not mandatory, but it is a very healthy source of needed vitamins.

If bones are not fed, a calcium supplement MUST be used. Other minerals will also need to be replaced, while some yet to be identified properties will be lost altogether.
