I think maybe she has got it the wrong way round, with people it is the carbs that give the highs as they hit the blood stream and are converted to sugar (glucose) very quickly, protein takes longer to digest.

"Dogs have short simple digestive tracts made for digesting animal protein and fat. Their systems are designed to consume and metabolize animal flesh and fat.

They have difficulty digesting grains and other complex carbohydrates.

So in its simplest terms – dogs are best fed high quality meat protein and fats with NO grains and few carbohydrates." :D:D:D

My mum has worried me
I was just thinking to myself "Jayne has had such a lovely time with George at Burghley, he is so settled with the family and she doesn't seem to be worrying as much......"
:laugh: :laugh: :laugh: (with you Jayne, not at you :D)

dry kibbles are full of artificial protein and in concentrated quantity's, raw meat is high in natural protein in a more natural quantity that is good for the body.


don't worry, dogs on raw are generally calmer than dogs on kibble(but puppies will be puppies ) carbohydrates are not required by a dog.
