Nutrition for dogs and cats: the differences with manMan is an omnivore and, as such, is perfectly adapted to benefit from a varied diet. Due to our digestive systems, we are able to meet our protein requirements through proteins that have a medium and low biological value (as in the case of legumes and cereals). Man also has another very important gift: free will, he can choose what he eats for himself, without any undue influence.The situation is completely different for dogs and cats, starting with two fundamental principles:
- A cat is a carnivore in the strictest sense; a dog is an optional carnivore
- They are not free to choose; we impose nutrition on themProteins are not all the same: they are made up of different amino acids depending on whether they come from the meat, fish or plants (legumes and cereals).
