Dogs Fed Kibble Have Elevated Levels of Metabolic Stress and Systemic Inflammation

Story at-a-glance

*My guest today is Robin Moore, a student at the University of Helsinki who is involved in the DogRisk research project to learn more about how nutritional, environmental and genetic factors influence disease in dogs

*Robin is involved in a Dogrisk metabolomics study to better understand the relationship between canine health and diet

*His study results to date suggest dogs fed a dry diet undergo significant metabolic stress

*The dogs on a dry diet also showed elevated levels of homocysteine, a marker for inflammation
"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." Edward Hoagland
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."
