Frequently asked questions
Aren’t dogs wolves/carnivores/meat-eating machines?
Good question! Dogs can digest protein from multiple sources, because dogs are omnivores — scavenging omnivores, to be exact. They evolved alongside humans over tens of thousands of years, developing gut enzymes that allow them to digest a wide variety of foods.
It turns out the digestive system of dogs (and humans) doesn’t care where your protein comes from — it matters that the protein is complete, high quality, bio-available, and easily digestible. In independent studies, our dog food tested high in digestibility, meaning your dog absorbs all the needed healthy protein and nutrients with every meal.
Why is Wild Earth’s dog food better than dog food made with meat?
The most dangerous ingredient in meat-based dog food is the meat itself. That is because, unlike the FDA, there is no regulatory body that oversees the quality of the ingredients in the food. There have been over 180 recalls in pet food since 2009 and almost all of them are from the meat ingredients. Toxic chemicals, euthanasia drugs, animal growth hormones, and harmful bacteria are just some of the things found in the meat in dog food today. Read our series on the state of dog food here.
Furthermore, allergy to meat is one of the most common allergies found in dogs. A 2016 study found 236 dogs with allergies to animal-based ingredients versus only 77 with allergies to plant-based ingredients.
Can dogs really eat protein from yeast?
Protein is a vital nutrient, essential for your dog’s health. Dogs require 10 essential amino acids, the building blocks of protein. These amino acids are found in animal meat, plants, and in our star ingredient — yeast.
