What can your dogs taste? October 03 2014, 0 Comments

Did you know that dogs have about 1,700 taste buds? Humans have approximately 9,000 and cats have around 473.  Dogs do not crave salt like humans do. Since meat has a high sodium content and wild dogs primarily eat meat, dogs ancestors already had enough salt in their diet and never developed the highly tuned salt receptors that humans have. Dogs also have taste buds for water, which humans do not. Dogs do taste sweet.  Let your dog indulge on fruits and berries!
