I canít in good conscience recommend this option for the majority of proactive pet owners, given the challenges of finding a good variety of fresh, raw, whole, legally obtained wild game.
I can obtain fresh, raw, whole, legally obtained wild game. (Yay for Colorado) Although the proteins I feed are beef, duck (rare), turkey (infrequent), lamb, goat, rabbit and sardine (rare). Of course this wouldn't tell you if his diet is balanced. You would need more information.
The wolf in the wild will eat:
All internal organs (kidneys, lungs, blood, intestines, liver, heart and brain)
Thyroid, adrenal and all other glands
Assorted other goodies
Many of these parts of the prey animal provide important nutrients for your dog (or kitty), so if youíre not feeding the whole prey, your pet is not getting all the essentials he needs to be healthy.
Which is why you need to research which parts provide which nutrients. You can figure this out within the website I linked as well as elsewhere.
If chicken legs are fed as a sole food source, your pet will become deficient in essential nutrients such as potassium, iron, copper, manganese, zinc, vitamins A, D, E and B12, iodine and choline.
Not feeding chicken legs as sole source. More info on this found in link I provided or found easily elsewhere. Point is DO THE RESEARCH.
They have been domesticated by humans
Dogs domesticated themselves, but this is a tangent. Just annoyed me when reading.
Her argument seems to be that since domestication dogs are no longer carnivores. I think the dog anatomy says otherwise. Sure, they seem to be "opportunistic" feeders, but I think they thrive on a BALANCED carefully designed PMR or heavily PMR based diet. I've done the research. If you want to have a discussion though, I am up for it.
