My vet swear by Spaghetti noodles (actually any pasta) as a savior for GSD's less than 2 years old. Also, believes that a good blend of cheese mixed with the noodles are not only healthy but actually reduce my costs. I give him 3 bowls of pasta a day around 8 cups. Once a week I give him meat that mailnly consists of chum tuna, I buy in bulk. He seems to be doing so well. I use to feed him Puppy Chow by Purina but he did not do well on it. He is fit as a fiddle! A great GSD who has alot of energy from the carbs he receives from the Pasta. This diet he been on for 3 months. Sometimes I also give him a can of ol Roys wet food with the pasta. Anyone heard of this new diet growing?
