Carboydrates & BARF?

855 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  trumpetjock
Ok, I'm still in the middle of my research. But I have noticed that some people include yams or potatoes once a week. I am assuming that is for the carbs. But if the idea is for the diet to be as natural as possible why are the carbohydrates needed? One of the main things I love about possibly switching to raw is getting my dogs off of grains and potatoes.

Can someone explain this for me?

Dogs have no need for carbs. They use fat in for energy the same way we use carbs. Some people just can't get it out of their heads that dogs (carnivores) have different dietary needs than humans (omnivores) My dogs are healthy after years without carbs in their diet. So are thousands of other dogs.
