When you’re reading a product label, you want to find proteins from a singular source, carbohydrates, and fats in that order. Food labels are listed by weight of an ingredient, so prioritizing protein first guarantees a high protein level in the ingredient.
Proteins are an essential energy source for your dog, and they help build muscle and strengthen bones while also being an excellent source for quick bursts of energy.
Carbohydrates are the next priority as they act as a delayed energy source and break down in the body as sugars. Sugars are the brain’s primary energy source, so having clean carbs will only enhance the mental function of your dog.
Fats act as long-term reserves of energy. Operating similar to carbohydrates, they assist the body with the absorption of vitamins and minerals.
