What can dogs eat?

Dogs can eat basically lots of things like human. They need nutritious food. Meat is very important source of protein, but they cannot eat just meat all the time. They should eat other nutritious food like eggs,apples,beans, oranges,potatoes,cheese, tomatoes, yogurt, carrots, fish, chocolate, corn, bananas.

    I have a friend who gives her three dogs a variety of foods. She uses only raw meat for them, leaves from certain trees, fruits, washed and ground egg shells. They also get bones, every night. They are very healthy on it as well.

    I just wonder if it is necessary to cook the meat, surely raw is better, isn't it?
