MOBone - A species appropriate diet for Dogs.
A species appropriate nutrition is a diet that is appropriate for a specific species. In order to thrive, an animal must eat a diet that its species has evolved to eat – a diet that its body is able to consume and digest effectively.
DOGS ARE CAPTIVE CARNIVORES
About 23000 years ago, when wolves were hunting in packs and humans were living in groups, they fell into a symbiotic relationship where man & wolf co-evolved ever after.Probably this is the longest co-evolution that has ever occurred dating back to days with no calendars…
Canus Lupus Familiaris(Dogs) are descendants of Canus Lupus (Grey Wolves). These wolves, thousands of years ago were formidable predators living in packs, hunting their prey. So was the homo sapiens working in groups for their living.
Evolution happens when members of species overcome the changing and challenging environments around them. Men welcomed friendly & less aggressive wolves for their useful traits like sharp smell, vision, speed etc. Wolves were happy too in this partnership as it had guaranteed easy meals and a safe home.
Eventually, over thousands of years man was able to change some of indigenous traits and appearance of dogs as per his needs to have a shepherd, a hunter, or a retriever. However, the extent of changes is only within the limits of what was existing in the genes already. For example, we cannot make a green Dog or a Dog that can draw!
Fundamentally, although Dogs have evolved through thousands of years, genetically Dogs are still wolves. It is scientifically proven that a Dog’s genotype varies only by a 0.2% from that of a grey wolf.
Hence it is wrong to think that the Dog's diet should be significantly different from wolves.
Afterall, DOGS ARE CAPTIVE CARNIVORES
So, we understand that one cannot feed a deer to an elephant or a sugarcane to a Lion. Then why feed our Dogs a carb-rich diet!!
Dogs have evolved to eat raw food and have been eating it since their ancestors crawled out of the oceans. Logically, if you feed a diet that is readily recognized, efficiently digested, and easily assimilated by the canine’s body, the overall friction in the system is minimal.
MOBone make this ideal diet practically possible in the urban world.
Some dogs can be defensive and territorial as with any (good) food. But feeding them raw does not make them more aggressive. There are no practical or documented evidence to prove this myth to be true.
Of course, feeding them just the Chicken or any one source of protein for a long duration puts them at a risk of deficiencies or excess of certain nutrients.
An intentional roster of feeding your Dogs raw meaty bones of various small/medium prey animals takes excellent care of their nutritional needs.
MOBone is carefully formulated by certified pet food nutritionists to make sure your Dog gets the ideal amount macro/micronutrients as required. Make sure to treat your Dogs with our varied range of protein sources.
Irrespective of what pets are fed, they are a potential source of zoonotic infections. The best approach to reduce the risk of infection is by responsible human behavior and follow good hygiene practices while handling any pet food. However according to studies, the risks are insignificant and does not outweigh the benefits of sharing our lives with Dogs.
Cooked bones are brittle and splinter as the moisture in them is removed completely. However, raw meaty are soft and easily digestible as are essential part of their nutrition to provide calcium and minerals.
MOBone minces the meat, organ and bones of the prey animals. The wholesome frozed feed is safe to consume and completes the nutritional demands as well.
Feeding Meat, Organs and Bones may seem expensive to start with, but include the un-incurred vet bills for the period you are feeding this diet, you will find this food exponentially cheaper!
