Feed Em’ Right—Saying No To Carbs


Conventional dry dog foods are heavy on carbs, with most exceeding 40 to 50 percent in total carbohydrate content.

This means that around half of typical dry dog food is composed of non-essential simple sugars – a fact that pet owners often aren't aware of because pet food manufacturers aren't required to list carbohydrate content on product labels.

Carb intake above the daily needs of dogs (which is essentially zero) triggers internal enzyme factors to store the excess as body fat. The livers of adult dogs are able to easily synthesize glucose from protein and fats, so there is no need to supply carbohydrates in the diet.
