You may have heard of the “Cave Man” diet as it applies to humans, the theory being that unprocessed fresh foods high in protein and low in carbohydrates are best for people who evolved successfully over thousands and thousands of years consuming just such a diet.
The Internet is one of the most amazing tools of our time; it’s also one of the biggest sources of misinformation. Considering there are about a gazillion gigabytes of half-truths at our fingertips, it’s no surprise that there are scores of myths out there.
In my two earlier posts on fats, I introduced the concept that improving the balance and types of fat that your dog eats is the best thing you can do to improve the chances that your dog lives a long, healthy, happy life.
