Dogs and Carbs

Post by centrop67 » Mon Aug 27, 2018 2:44 pm

The Science Dog - Linda P. Case - recently published an article on her website discussing the issue of carbs and feeding.

Are dogs carnivores?
Do they need starch?
Can they use starch?

Head on over to the article for the answer to these questions.

Good read.

Don’t have to worry about it with my GSD though, she hates carbs. She’ll even spit out a Mickey Ds French fry lol
