    I agree with AGK .Its about equivalent to a guy who lifts weights for 45 mins a day but tries to consume 1 gram of protein per lb of body weight a day.45 mins of working out will not burn no where near say 200 grams so the rest is shit and pissed out .It really makes it harder on your system to get rid of the waste .Now you take a body builder who works out around 4 hrs a day then yes he needs it .I broke it down in human form to make it easier to understand.Even working dogs wont get worked hard every single day !I know their is other supliments besides protein .If anything give supliments that will help aid in digestion .

    Also watch your digestion aids.You want the food to stay in the body long enough to absorb nutrients .Yogart has proven to be a good digestive aid for dogs and humans.You really want to get technical start studying the shape and color of shit.

    I go by their physical appearance and most definitely the color and consistency of their dung. Will tell you everything you need to know about a particular dogs diet and whether it's lacking something in the feed. Good point.

  5. Yeah supplementation goes wayy beyond protein or in relation to lifting weights or working out. Supplementation is so vast and can help in so many different ways. Both dog and humans

    Speaking of nutritional supplements, which ones would you recommend for a pitbull in Germany? The thing is that I may well go live there this year. I'm going first this summer as to oversee a project regarding this real estate in Bavaria and if everything goes right, I'm moving there full time with my family.

    There are a lot of options out there, and what you pick might depend on your dog's size.

    For the dog owner (or renter) on a budget, try opting for turkey or ground beef mixed with water or low-sugar canned meat mixed with water. Vegetables like carrots, green beans, celery, pumpkin are also good sources of things like fiber and antioxidants that dogs need while avoiding things that can cause gas. Things like brown rice will help round out their diet by giving them something to chew on because they don't have teeth for chewing foods anymore.

    What do I feed my dog? Well, that's a really important question. It is also one for which there are a lot of answers. And many people have strong opinions for or against certain foods and ingredients. The truth of the matter is- dogs can be sensitive creatures and what works well with one breed/temperament might not work so well with another.

    Scratch that, feed your dog three times a day. Ideally, provide them with food and water in regular intervals regardless of the length of time spent out during the day. Be mindful of potential sources for bacterial, protozoal, or viral contamination--don't leave any food out, and be careful when petting other dogs!
