But my dog likes…

I hear it all the time, “but my dog picks apples from the trees, so this means he should eat it. ”

Somehow we’ve got it into our heads that if our dogs like something then they must need it in their diet.

So, here’s the thing:  if your dog/cat/ferret was supposed to eat things like fruit and veggies, they would have the digestive system (including teeth) that are set up appropriately for them to digest stuff.

And if we use the logic that we should feed dogs/cats/ferrets things that they like, we’d be feeding them burger and chocolate at every meal.  In fact, we’d all be on the same diet!
