Veterinary Nutrition Group has experience formulating diets for police or military dogs, agility and obedience dogs, working field trial dogs, sled dogs, other racing dogs, and herding or stock dogs.
Elite canine athletes can certainly benefit from optimal nutrition. Some nutritional considerations for these dogs might include different hydration strategies, energy requirements, the protein, fat and carbohydrate content of the diet, appropriate feeding times and frequency, the EPA and DHA content, the digestibility of the diet, and the antioxidants in the diet.
It is also essential to closely monitor body condition, body weight and muscle condition, in order to minimise the risk of injury and maximise performance.
