Protein is an extremely important part of your dog’s daily intake of food, because only protein ensures he has necessary amino acids, essential energy and the nutrients to grow and develop properly. Because of your dog’s design, what he will prefer are meat-based dog foods. When you research different brands, check the ingredient list. Does it list organ meat and other meats, or only meat fat?
The best thing for your dog is to offer him a variety of food. This is easily accomplished by switching between dry kibble and high-protein canned food. You can also offer high-protein treats during the day. Another great option is leftovers. Dogs love cooked chicken, beef or pork, but it’s critical that these foods do not contain onion or garlic, and are unseasoned to avoid stomach upset.
It’s also extremely important to know the daily recommended amount of protein for your pooch’s diet. You can check Dogma’s website here for a wonderful variety of high-protein foods.
