Question by Sandra L: My dog started eating quinoa. I can see the entire grains in his poop. Can dogs digest quinoa?
My dog started eating quinoa last week. I mix it with raw buffalo meat. I can see the entire grains in his poop. This is an amazing food but I don’t think he is digesting it and I wonder if it is worth giving it to him?
I do cook the quinoa because I know he wouldn’t digest the raw quinoa.
Does anyone know this for sure? any vets out there?

Dogs’ intestines aren’t equipped to handle fiber. They are carnivors. They have short intestines. We have long intestines, so quinoa is good for us.
