DOES CARBOHYDRATES NEED THE DOG’S NUTRITION?

Do not rush to give up carbohydrates.

Feeding boiled white rice is an old known way to curb mild diarrhea in a dog. However, white rice has a high glycemic index, so I suggest using this diet only for a short time and in very moderate amounts. It is much better to replace white rice with brown. If your dog has rice intolerance, it can be replaced with gluten-free oatmeal (can be found in health food stores and a number of supermarkets).

A number of cereals used in feeding dogs has a high glycemic index – wheat, corn, white rice, etc. According to one of the leading experts on pet health, Dr. Dodds, they cause a chronic inflammatory response of the body and can contribute to the emergence and development of a number of serious diseases including obesity, daibet, heart disease, arthritis and oncology.

Whole (unrefined) grains, such as millet, gluten-free oatmeal, cinema and other gluten-free grains are a much healthier choice. Note – millet can inhibit the activity of the thyroid gland in dogs with thyroid disease, this effect is enhanced if millet is brewed, so we recommend that you avoid this cereal.

Sometimes there are calls to completely abandon carbohydrates – both for us and for our pets, but carbohydrates (cereals, fruits and vegetables) are a valuable source of energy and are necessary for the healthy functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, maintaining health at the cellular level. Although dogs do not have a pronounced need for carbohydrates, our experience suggests that a healthy diet with the right ratio of proteins, fats and carbohydrates improves the quality and life expectancy of your pet. In addition, in our experience, carbohydrate-free diets are worse perceived by dogs and lead to their excessive leanness.

Vegetables and fruits, in our opinion, are necessary in the dog’s diet, as they are an indispensable source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants. Dr. Dodds recommends the following carbohydrates for your dog’s diet: cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts); Fresh fruits – apples, bananas, berries, melon and watermelon; legumes, for example beans, lentils, chickpeas and peas.
