The German Shepherd Dog originated in the Alsatian Region of Germany. Today it is used world wide as a sentry, police dog, tracker, drug dog, search and rescue dog, and guide dog for the blind. The official name for this breed is German Shepherd Dog
The German Shepherd Dog is unique because it has a very short colon in comparison to other breeds of the same body weight. For this reason a high fiber diet is required to slow the movement of food through this breed's digestive track, thereby allowing more time for the nutrients to be drawn out. This high fiber diet will result in a larger stool but better assimilation of the food. I caution that this fiber must be from the proper sources and the amount should be carefully controlled. Too much fiber or fiber of the wrong type can cause impacted bowels.
The environment for the Alsatian Region of Germany provided this breed with primary food sources of beef, wheat, and leafy greens like cabbage and alfalfa. Thus, its recommended a blend of these food sources as the ideal base diet for the German Shepherd. Conversely, the worst commercial food blend for the German Shepherd Dog would contain fish, soy, or rice.

dogs do not need carbohydrates as we think. its only a fraction needed and rice is just carbos..will act only as a filler..that is why its suggested about 50 gm of unboiled rice in a weekly diet. rest depends upon time/effort/availabilty/climat /etc many factor on dogs diet. Cyni 4800 is better and if used for a month can gain good amount of weight. Cyno4300 has les kcal about 500 less than cyno 4800. see what is available
