Because work of canines is to tear the food. there is no need of canines to tear food for herbivores animals..
cellulose isn't digested in humans because the digestive system of the animals is longer then the humans...
human digestive system isn't actually capable of digesting cellulose. it doesn't contain the liquids or acids or digestive juices etc that animals have for digesting cellulose.
vitamins are importance for every animal because they have effect on body's main parts like vitamin d is for bones. if the animals will not have they will not have stronger bones. and without moving they will not survive
