    cat food is not good for dogs...too high in proteins and wrong amounts of nutrients for dogs. Dogs are omnivors...cats are carnivors by nature.

    Sorry but this is only something I just learned so I have a question?

    What sort of stuff would a dog 'naturally eat' if we didn't give them dog food? Would they eat corn, potatoes etc on their own?

    So would a 'wild dog' (for lack of a better term) hunt down vegies etc?

    also...now this is interesting...people say dogs do not eat grains. The animals a dog would kill in nature will be mostly herbivores...right....like rodents etc. What is the first thing a dog eats when they kill an animal (have heard this on some nature show on Foxtel)? The stomach and contents....which will contain grasses and grain consumed by the other animal. Dogs need the grain for rouphage in digesting their food.

    they would eat what is offered and if they had to choose between fresh food and dog kibble...it doesn't take an Einstein to figure what they would choose

    Put a bowl of fresh food and a different bowl with kibble in it on the floor....and see what the dog chooses

    I don't think Frosty prefers what's best for her - any more than free range humans do.

    Given a choice between casserole and kibble - she prefers kibble.

    Given a choice between piece of cheese, liver treat, piece of kitten kibble, dog kibble, bread etc she goes for what's nearest and munches around the circle of treats, no preference at all, all good as far as she's concerned. Or she doesn't eat any of it. You never know.

    Given a choice between casserole and horse poo - the horse poo wins.

    Given a choice between casserole and marrow bone - the casserole wins.

    Given a choice between rawhide chew and casserole - the chew wins.

    Given a choice between her tennis ball and some other dog's - the other dog's ball wins.

    Given a choice between some other dog's owner holding a treat, and me holding a treat, the other dog owner wins. Doesn't matter if it's the SAME treats (ie I gave them to the other dog owner).

    So what dog prefers - doesn't mean a lot when it comes to healthy dogs.

    Dingos like velvet soap bars and rubber washing up gloves.
