In order for a dog’s body to function properly, they would need the right amount of protein in their daily diet. Their strong bones and muscles, their healthy skin and soft coat, and their immunity rely heavily on the amino acids that are created when protein is broken down. So, to avoid running into any health issues, all dog owners should be more conscious of the amount of protein dog food contains.
While dogs can produce some amino acids internally, not all of them are essential. There are 10 others– arginine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine, that must come from a dog’s high-protein diet to keep them strong, healthy, and energized.
High-protein diets are also beneficial for dogs that need to shed a few pounds. While an overweight dog can look cute, obesity increases the risk of cancer, heart disease, hypertension, and joint issues. Your veterinarian could prescribe a low-calorie, high-protein diet to maintain lean muscle, promote the burning of calories, and keep them feeling fuller for longer.
