Many of us like to run and exercise with our dogs. And as our dogs become tired and hungry during their workout, we shore them up with made-for-human performance bars and Gatorade.
In Feeding Your Canine Athlete | NYTimes.com Gretchen Reynolds reports that "the latest science about performance nutrition for canines underscores that dogs are not people." Recommendation for hydrating exercising dogs is plenty of good old-fashioned, relatively cheap water:
Dogs don't sweat like we do. They pant to cool themselves. But they do lose fluids during activity. On the other hand, they are much better than most people at rehydrating. We did a study with search-and-rescue dogs working in 90-degree heat. They replaced their fluid losses almost drop for drop.
To recover from a workout, the article recommends protein-rich dog food to build and maintain muscle plus a small increase in their fat intake. At Food for the Active Dog.
