How Much and What Should Dogs Eat

Wolves love to prey on other animals, like deer, goats, sheep, etc. They will scavenge, eating plants when prey is scarce, but don’t prefer to. Most scientists agree that dogs, or almost all dog breeds, descended from wolves. Like wolves, they are mainly carnivores. Even wild or stray dogs will scavenge when they have to (stray dogs probably have to a lot), but dogs prefer animal meat to anything else. Their sharp teeth were designed to grab, hold, rip and tear at meat. Their bodies were designed to thrive off of animal protein, meat and fats, not plants or carbohydrates.

Why is That? Cat Behavior at Human Home

Cats are territorial animals and for domestic cats the territory falls in with the home that they inhabit. In addition to taking every inch of their territory as their own, cats need privacy and places, which belong only to them. They are social animals who seek the human company, as well as independent animals who need privacy, and sometimes they need to be self-sufficient.

How to Raise Healthy and Vital Chihuahua

I do the shopping twice a month and each time I get a whole chicken or a similar amount of that in separate parts. Normally it’s about 4 – 4,4 pounds (1,8 – 2 kg). I divide it in 13 – 15 daily portions of ca. 0,26 – 0,30 lbs (0,120 – 0,140 kg) each. The portions vary within 20 percent, depending on how he spent his day. If he ran and burned calories, he would eat more, and if he stayed at home, he would get then less food.
