Dog food is food that has been prepared especially for dogs and other canines. Dogs are regarded as omnivores with a preference for carnivorous foods. They are obligate carnivores like cats, lacking the ten genes responsible for starch and glucose digestion and the ability to produce amylase, an enzyme that works to break down carbohydrates into simple sugars. However, they have the sharp, pointed teeth and shorter gastrointestinal tracts of carnivores, better suited for meat consumption than vegetable substances. Dogs developed the ability to coexist with humans in agricultural communities because they survived on human waste and dung. The capacity of dogs to digest carbohydrates readily may be a crucial distinction between dogs and wolves. Dogs have evolved over thousands of years to exist on the meat and non-meat scraps and leftovers of human life and flourish on a variety of diets. By 2022, the dog food business in the United States is anticipated to be worth USD 23.3 billion.
