We’ve known this for decades. High protein (at lest 60% of any meal), vegetables, and berries. And healthy fats, you can’t eat just any fats. Also, dogs need more than just meat and fat, they also need vitamins and nutrients you get from vegetables. Green beans, peas, raspberries / strawberries, carrots, and fish oil is good for them. Please do some more research if all you’re feeding your dog is meat and fat.

Yes, packs of wolves are always seen out picking beans and berries. Fat and protein and organ meat gives you all the notorious one needs.

Wolves do actually eat a large number of grasses, fruits, and vegetables. Upwards of 40% of their diet is random plants they eat as they meander about before winter hits.

Just found your source https://rangerplanet.com/what-do-wolves-eat-complete-list-of-what-a-wolf-preys-on/

looks like they do it out of necessity "Therefore, their diet has adapted to accommodate the different seasons, their changing environments and therefore the availability of food."

No pray no meat. Kids in Africa eat cooked clay and dirt. With your logic humans need it in their diet. This is clearly not the case. If Wolves could eat meat they would eat entirely meat and be healthier I'm sure. I know this because my dogs healthier and so am I from cutting sugar and carbohydrates.

Further in your source it states "Vitamins and nutrients in a wolf’s diet With a majority of a wolf’s diet made up of prey, organs such as lungs, liver, heart, and kidneys are given importance, which is high in B vitamins, vitamin A, minerals, and fatty acids that are required for maintenance, growth, and reproduction.

On average, a wolf’s diet consists of a whopping 49% protein, 44% fat and 6% carbohydrate, resultant in consuming 85% to 90% meat."

If I'd used a single source I'd have linked it, but instead, I verified over a multitude of articles. I imagine you can do the same.

Know how I know you’re a retard? You think your dog which has been selectively bred over thousands upon thousands of generations throughout the last 30,000 years has the same nutritional requirements as a wild Wolf.

Didn't say this, you assumed this because I mentioned wolves. That's how I know you're a retard who can't read.
