This table is intended as a guide only and exact feeding amounts should be varied according to your dog’s breed, sex, condition and activity levels. When introducing VetSpec into your dog’s diet we advise that this is done gradually over a period of 5-10 days until it replaces all other food. Fresh drinking water should always be available.

Technical Focus

Energy Metabolism

The two primary fuels for working muscle are muscle glycogen and fat. In an active dog approximately 70-90% of the energy needed for hard consistent work is derived from fat metabolism (FFAs) through aerobic pathways. Muscle glycogen stores from carbohydrate are however essential to enable dogs to perform fast bursts of energy anaerobically. The fat, carbohydrate and protein in the diet of hard-working dogs must consist of highly digestible ingredients to be effective. High quality protein is also essential to build the muscle structures during growth and fitness training.
