I am a tad confused by the effects these have on dogs.... I was under the impression that cerials should be kept to a minnimum because dogs are not intended to eat these really AND I was under the impression that they may make dogs hyper? I was reading on a different forum that said unless a dog is a working dog it should not have a high protein diet AND that high protein makes dogs hyper. Hmmmm so low protein and low carbs.... Are they expected to go veggie LOL, That isnt a very dog like thing to do either. I hear folks say that carbs give you energy although I have also heard that carbs are better eaten at night because they make you feel sluggish. All this info is way too confusing!
