Exactly. That's why an overweight dog should get higher protein and low carbs. Yet most lower calorie dog food is exactly the opposite. And when a dog processes their food efficiently, you don't have near the intestinal problems. Humans can derive energy from carbs, dogs get their energy from fat and protein.
