Dogs and Protein
Protein allows your dog’s body to function properly. The essential amino acids your dog gets from protein contribute to healthy hair and skin, muscle development and tissue repair, just to name a few benefits.
Protein is essential for these critical bodily functions:
- Maintaining and repairing cells and other tissues (e.g., skin, muscle, bone and hair)
- Helping to support the immune system
- Making hormones, antibodies, and enzymes
Protein can also be a source of calories to fuel dogs’ energy levels. A complete and balanced food, formulated with your dog’s protein needs in mind, will help keep him strong and healthy.
