Benefits of a high protein diet for your dog
High quality protein sourced from either red or white meat contains important amino acids that your dog needs to thrive.
Equally, a diet rich in protein is beneficial for performance dogs and is recommended for highly active dogs to help build muscle strength and support their energy levels over periods of extended exercise.
A high protein diet also has benefits for a dog who needs to lose weight as protein is involved in satiety (feeling full). So all things being equal, the higher the protein level in the food, the less your dog needs to eat to feel full and satisfied.
For aging pets, high protein diets are considered by many to be a healthy diet option. Senior or aging dogs tend to slow down as they age, so while their calorie requirements may reduce, their need for healthy food is never greater and their need for excellent nutrition to keep their immune system as strong as possible and their joints in good working order is important.
