Just like humans, the scientific community classifies dogs as omnivores.
There is a wide misconception that we need to feed meat to our dogs. But dogs don’t need meat, they need quality protein!
Contrary to popular belief, complete proteins aren’t only found in meat. High quality plant proteins such as yeast, fungi, and algae are complete proteins, meaning they contain the 10 essential amino acids a dog needs to obtain from diet. Amino acids work for dogs in the same way they do for humans. They help dogs build muscle, produce hormones, and fight infection.
