Treat Tuesday: Zukes Power Bones

Zuke's Power Bones are sort of like an energy supplement you give your dog while exercising, maybe like those energy gels for people? Zuke's advertises these as containing fast-burning carbs for quick energy, which would be great if dogs used carbohydrates that way. Instead, they mostly use fat for energy.
Soft dog treat

Good For: Picky dogs. High-value training treats. Dogs that could stand to gain some weight via 20-calorie treats.

Not Good For: Actually providing energy during periods of high activity.

How Much We Like Them: Enough to consider actually using them as intended before researching how dogs actually metabolize carbohydrates. It's a nice idea, but dog bodies don't work like human bodies. I'll stick ith high-fat performance dog food, thank you very much.
