3 Different Sources of Protein For Dogs

4 Different Sources of Protein For Dogs

Is your dog getting the right kind of protein? There are various sources of protein that are completely safe for dogs to consume, but remember that they should also be easy to digest! This is because easily digestible protein makes it easier for the body to absorb the nutrients that will keep them strong, healthy, and happy. What should you be looking for? Here are two of the most common protein-rich ingredients you’ll find in dog food.

Real Meat
This is the most natural source of protein, which makes it also the most natural for dogs to digest. Chicken, a popular meat option that’s seen on most dog food labels, is always good. Because it’s lean meat, it contains less fat but still provides the essential amino acids required in a dog’s diet.

Meat Meal
It’s easier to think of this as meat concentrate with an abundant amount of protein! The process to produce meat meal is called rendering and it involves cooking real meat like a stew and draining out the water to end up with a concentrated protein powder.

Meats and meat by-products (may consist of blood and organs but do not include hide, hair, hooves, and teeth) are exceptionally high-quality protein sources for dogs that can be found in the enhanced nutrition formulation of Pedigree® Pro High Protein. It was designed by veterinarians and nutritionists at WALTHAM- the world’s leading authority on pet care and nutrition, so you can be sure your dogs are only eating what’s best for them. The combination of protein sources offers as much as 50% more protein to make even the most active dogs healthy, fit, and energized.
