I feed alot of pasta especially to pups as it piles the weight on , and burns of slowly producing energy as its a carb . Alot of coursing lads feed carbs the day before the dog is run .

Dogs dont get there energy from Carb's, They get there energy from Fats

Me ad rather be getting more raw food into it than pasta, And small and othen 4/6 times a day,

Plus if your going to use mixer/complete feed at diffrent times than the raw as it digests at diffrent times in the stomach eg feed raw in the morning and dry at night or the other way round,

And good regualar worming with a decent wormer and you wont have a problems..

Thanks mate , thought anyone would know that !!! . Carbs slowly release energy into the system thats what helps your stamina .

"There is no known minimum dietary carbohydrate requirement for either the dog or the cat. Based on investigations in the dog and with other species it is likely that dogs and cats can be maintained without carbohydrates if the diet supplies enough fat or protein from which the metabolic requirement for glucose is derived." hope this helps

The working dog food I give my dogs contains dry pasta and I feel it gives them that little bit extra energy and size.Carbohydrates will definately give a fit dog more muscle mass as it breaks down to glycogen which is stored in the muscle cells.Most racing greyhounds have boiled rice(high in complex carbohydrates) as a big part of their diet.

You know what i mean any working dog..

Be it coursing,Ferreting or sled pulling herding..

Ill still stand by the fact the fat is the best form of energy,

Im not saying carbs cant give energy after the body has converted them into one thing and then the body can absorb that bla bla..
Like i say ill leave it to someone that knows the fancey ins and outs of it to explain
