As carnivores, our dogs are designed to cope with meat rather than the chlorophyll in
plants; they can only make full use of leafy herbs if they are chopped very finely. It is this lack of ability to digest plants in their raw form which is the reason that carnivores will often obtain partly digested
plant material by eating cow and horse dung and wild dogs and large cats will be seen eating the stomach of their prey with great relish! It may not be so appealing to us but this does explain the sometimes strange
preferences that our domesticated animals still have for these tasty items. So make sure that you chop all herbs very finely before adding it to the feed.
