I hope I'm putting this in the right place. This is a paragraph from the malamute book I have. Why do these people keep insisting that dog's need carbs? Is any of this true? Do carbs provide some energy?
oh, and the typo you see there is an actual typo in the book. *carbos*A dog's energy needs are not fueled by fat alone. Assisting them in this job are carbohydrates, although carbos are not typically as high in energy as fats. Carbohydrates are prominent players in most commercial dog food formulations, present in such key ingredients as corn, rice, and barley. They play an important role in both the working Malamute's ability to travel long distances over the ice and snow, and the companion Malamute's afternoon spent competing in agility. -Betsy Sikora Siino
