Default use of the definite article

Dear teachers,

Would you please tell me which type of article is needed in the following sentence and why? Could both the definite and the indifinite articles are possible ?

Many families keep pet animals like dogs. As is pointed out by some scientists, A / THE dog needs a regular balanced diet, not just meat.

Thank you for your help.
