Wild Diet Definition

Wild Diet: Dogs are not designed to eat dry kibble, just like we are not designed to eat crackers as our main food source. Dogs in the wild eat freshly killed animals. While the wide availability of pre-packaged commercial dog food in the last half century has led us to think of it as the dog’s natural diet, it is decidedly not so. According to human cancer research (including that done by Sir Richard Doll, a British epidemiologist who was knighted, in addition to receiving several other honors for his work), about one third of human cancers can be prevented by improving the diet alone. The wild diet is the basis for the dog cancer diet featured in Chapter 14 of The Dog Cancer Survival Guide.
