Dogs share 99.8% of the same DNA makeup as a wolf.
As we have discussed, a species-appropriate diet will benefit your dog the most because it is what they were designed to eat if they were in the wild.
Similarly, the frequency of their meals can benefit your dog’s overall health as well. Like wolves, if your dog was in the wild they would not have constant access to food.
Due to the availability of prey, it may be a natural occurrence that they may only eat once a day. This cycle of eating and then fasting contributes to making their bodies and immune system stronger. Also remember, a dog’s nutritional needs are different than humans.
We have to keep in mind how they were biologically designed to survive and thrive. Intermittent fasting can be beneficial to your dog by naturally flushing out toxins, using all the energy to regenerate rather than using it for digestion, and promoting overall self-healing.
