Benefits Of High Protein Dog Food

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, healthy skin and soft coat, and immunity are all heavily reliant on the amino acids produced when protein is broken down. So, to avoid running into any health issues, all dog owners should be more aware of the need for a sufficient amount of protein as well as the benefits of high-protein dog food.

The primary benefits of high-protein dog food are improved health, wellness, and longevity. If your dog doesn't get enough protein, his body can begin to break down protein to get what he needs. While dogs can produce some amino acids on their own, not all of them are essential. They must regularly get the other 10 essential amino acids—arginine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine—from a dog’s high-protein diet to keep them strong, healthy, and energized.

The health benefits of high-protein dog food also include supporting weight management. While a chubby dog may look cute, obesity increases the risk of cancer, heart disease, hypertension, and joint issues. Your veterinarian may recommend a low-calorie, high-protein diet to help them maintain lean muscle, burn calories, and feel fuller for longer.
