    There is a study circulating among sporting breeds/huntng groups about a stud from Cornell University that a high fat (corn oil) diet improves detection rates from 70% to 90% ….corn oil is one that I don’t especially like since it is GMO and corn linked to inflammation and obeseity. what is your take on the study and the diet?

    I don’t research sporting/hunting dog diets but it sounds like they had a preference for polyunsaturated fat, so maybe other oils can be used instead of corn.

    Hi Sandra-

    Interesting study. I would also be interested in the studies linking corn to inflammation and obesity. If you can link those that would be great.
