Should this beautiful animal change the way we think about our dog’s nutrition?

This striking animal shown here in captivity; is a maned wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) and it is the largest canid in South America.
His marks resemble those of foxes, but he is not a fox or a wolf. It is the only species of the genus Chrysocyon (which means “golden dog”).

Further proof that dogs are omnivores is this very interesting article about how dogs have evolved alongside us and their digestive processes have evolved too.

They now produce longer chains of specific digestive enzymes that are adapted for digesting starches and grains – not meat. Dogs produce the enzyme amylase, which is present is the human digestive system (including our saliva) and allows us to digest carbohydrates. This is a result of thousands of years of evolution in conjunction with humans. For millennia, dogs have been fed human foods, such as scraps and leftovers from meals, and have thus evolved the ability to digest carbohydrates from plant-based foods.
