Post workout foods

I would like to know what are the best foods to feed my dog after an semi-intense workout such as running,flirt pole,spring pole? I have a 1 year old girl and I feed her twice a day. Once in the Am and once around 5:30pm. Does it matter if I feed her second feeding after her workout or before? And after the workout should I just give eggs or chicken to feed and supplement her muscles? Anyone have a certain regimen they follow to add muscle. I know she's still young so I'm not going to go nuts over here but just to get her in pretty good shape for now. Here's some recent photos of her now

Sorry I forgot to mention that currently I'm feeding her a little over 2 cups a day of Orijen puppy.

I feed about an hour after exercise. I'm wary about feeding before just because of the correlation with bloat.

I would not just feed chicken and egg. That is not a balanced meal for your dog and you can cause nutritional imbalances or deficiencies by feeding unbalanced diets consistently. A raw egg every couple days could be beneficial, but your dog should not need any kind of supplements to be in good shape. A proper diet and exercise routine is all they need (plus genetics will largely determine how muscly they look anyway).

Thank you for the fast response. Well I wasn't very clear about what I meant to say so sorry about that. What I meant was I was going to add egg and/or chicken to her second feeding just to supplement with extra protein. I wasn't going to cut the second feeding out entirely and only give eggs or chicken. She would get her second feeding of the Orijen along with a little extra protein boost. Unless it isn't necessary that is.

I still wouldn't do that. Orijen is a great kibble and kibbles are designed to be balanced diets. By adding extras like that, you're throwing off the balance. No extra protein is necessary, Orijen is already a very high protein diet.

I wouldn't alter or add anything to Orijen, it is the number 1 food on the market for a reason. I agree with BCdogs that you will throw off the balance of a great diet by adding extras. If it is weight you are concerned about, try to lower or increase the amount you are feeding slightly to get the wanted weight. But also remember that food is half the battle, if you are wanting her to get muscle tone, she will need proper exercise with the proper diet. They go hand in hand. The more exercise the more food intake the more muscle build, but if you feed for an active dog make sure shes active. If she is not active feed less or else she will get overweight fast. I
feed my girls Orijen 1 cup in the morning then 3/4 cup in the evening. And they are very active.
The chart on the back of the bag is a guideline, all dogs have different metabolisms so alter accordingly.

Ok. I was following the bag serving sizes exactly bc i thought it needed to be exact for her weight but being that I can alter it I might feed her a little more bc she's is so active. Thank you!
