Choose high-meat-content dog food rich in protein
Protein is an essential component of a healthy and balanced canine diet, as it is responsible for a multitude of bodily functions. For example, it contributes to muscle and tissue formulation and repair, hair growth and skin cell formulation. For this reason, it is imperative that your dog has a high-quality source of protein in their diet.
Nutriment’s dedication to raw feeding ensures that every dog food product has a very high meat-content and, thereby, naturally high in quality protein. Formulated by in-house canine nutritionists, our high meat-content dog food is free from artificial ingredients, fillers, bulking agents, and grains to ensure that it is easily digestible, packed with nutrients and as close to a dog’s natural diet as possible.
Supplemented with nutritious, low-carbohydrate vegetables and nutrient-dense superfoods, Nutriment’s raw high-protein dog food is a fantastic choice of diet for all breeds, sizes, and ages to support overall health, well-being, and vitality. It is ideal for both overweight dogs as well as small dogs.
Why are proteins important for the dog?
Proteins are made up of building blocks called amino acids. For dogs, there are 22 amino acids which are used to form proteins. Ten of these need to be obtained through the diet. These are referred to as “essential amino acids” and are known as:
A protein source is referred to as complete if it contains all ten of these essential amino acids. In general, red meat, poultry, and fish are considered complete proteins, and at Nutriment, we carefully select meat protein sources to ensure they are responsibly farmed and of the highest quality for our raw high-meat-content dog food.
Why do dogs need quality, high-meat-content dog food?
Your dog’s diet is highly important for his or her overall health. As is the case with humans, a balanced and nutritious diet is just as important when it comes to the well-being and vitality of dogs. For example, a high-protein diet based on fresh meat can contribute to the following:
Muscle mass and maintaining a healthy weight
Many commercially available dog foods contain an abundance of corn, ash, or grain to bulk the food. Though this may satisfy your dog’s hunger, and still provide a certain amount of nutrition, this is no replacement for high-quality, natural, and raw protein from complete protein sources.
It is important that dogs consume all ten of the essential amino acids as they contribute to his or her healthy bodily functions. And this may not be possible with the bulking ingredients some dog food manufacturers use.
Strength and resilience
Similarly for humans, protein is one of the main elements that contribute to a dog’s muscle and tissue formulation and repair. Without it, dogs may be prone to muscle atrophy and wastage, which will affect their strength and daily life activity.
Additionally, the building blocks of protein – amino acids – are essential to the repair and formulation of skin cells all over the body, including organs and systems which contribute to the dog’s immunity. Consuming quality protein from Nutriment’s high-meat-content dog food will provide all the protein and nutrients to support optimal health.
Supports coat and skin health
Protein is also responsible for hair and skin cell-growth. This means that when a dog is consuming all the essential amino acids he or she requires, the dog will be able to function in an ideal way to maintain optimal skin and hair health.
Skin acts as a barrier to harmful substances, and as a method of detoxing for dogs, so healthy skin is absolutely imperative to the overall health of a dog. A dog’s coat is made almost entirely of protein, and should a dog’s protein intake not be sufficient, hair can become brittle, dry, and hair loss can occur.
Energy levels and exercise
To maintain an active lifestyle, dogs need an adequate supply of protein which they use as an energy source. Choosing a natural, raw, high-quality protein, which can be found in Nutriment’s high-meat-content dog food range, will ensure that your dog is able to easily digest his or her food so that all nutrients, including protein, are adequately broken down, absorbed, and utilised within the body.
Lower in carbohydrates
Some commercially available varieties of dog food can contain a high carbohydrate content, which is not something most dogs need in large amounts - despite its potential source of energy.
The source of this carbohydrate can be concerning, as dogs usually cannot digest grain or wheat easily. Contrarily, Nutriment’s high-meat-content dog food provides a biologically appropriate, natural and raw source of protein, vegetables, and superfoods to ensure that your dog has the right amount of energy and vitality to fulfil their daily activities.
