The ancestral diet for the modern Urban Wolf.

Wild dogs and wolves have been hunting and eating prey for thousands of years. Dogs have therefore developed a digestive system that functions best on raw foods. Only since the industrial age has the common diet of dogs been cooked, high in grains, and low in nutrients.

The biologically appropriate, nutritionally sound and adequate, ancestral diet is based on fresh prey's meat, bone, innards, and predigested fruit and vegetation such as seeds, leaves and grasses.
