dietary concerns and affects of the wild and domesticated canines October 15, 2006 10:00 AM

 just read this on dietary aspects of wild and domesticate canine's 9:58 AM
i just read that the dietary of the domestic dog and the dietary intake of wild dog like species has a huge effect to the diseases and parasite issues. i had no idea that wolves, let say, due to the balanced and wild meats meals, actually do not suffer heartworm diseases, where the domesticated companion dog, has to be medicated for this disease to survive?  it was interesting to me, in the fact that i study all the time about dogs health/diet/behavior issues and rehab the poorly trained throw away animals.  i have concerns of dietary issues and am going to do more research to the wild species dietary intakes and try to adapt the rescued dogs to more natural and healthier meals to assist in some of the immune deficiencies that i get in with the dogs resced from kill shelters or abusive situations.  but if anyone knows more of the dietary and hunting aspects of the wolf and other wild dog like species, i would love to hear and read of that info here also. i am not up on wolves as much as companion dogs and there are some differences due to breeding and traits that have been changed, but i do believe the dietary aspects are very closely related all the same. thank you and hugs all - kindle  [ send green star]  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
