My Paleo Pet Debunks 3 Common Myths About BARF Diets & Fruits/Vegetables Consumption

Pompano Beach, FL — (ReleaseWire) — 01/28/2022 — My Paleo Pets enables pet owners to feed their pets the BARF diet in Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Jupiter, FL, Pompano Beach, West Palm Beach as well as nationwide. While the Biologically Appropriate Raw Food diet (BARF diet) has been proven to support pet (dog & cat) health, there is still a lot of confusion surrounding canine consumption of fruits and vegetables.

My Paleo Pet tackles these three known myths about feeding dogs fruits and vegetables.

1. Dogs need to eat vegetables.
False. Dogs are able to fully absorb nutrients from specific herbs and plants, however fruits and vegetables play a minor role in nutrition in carnivores and should not be fed in any large quantities. The reason is because their bodies are not designed for the carbohydrates and sugars contained within them. There is a small amount of vegetables that are acceptable but only in small amounts for consumption.

2. Plants don’t have nutritional value for dogs.
False. Plants contain many phytochemicals that are beneficial to the health and immune function of your dogs. These phytochemicals include antioxidants, carotenoids, and flavonoids. Our pets’ wild ancestors drank from puddles loaded with herbal residue from nearby plants to provide just that. Adding natural herbal foods to your pet’s diet is a way to provide those types of nutrients to today’s domesticated carnivore pets.

3. Vegetables and fruits play a role in nutritional requirements for dogs.
False. Nothing could be further from the truth! Both canines and felines are carnivores and a raw natural diet of meats, fish and poultry can provide both species with fiber, energy, and vitamins that are essential for creating a balanced diet.
