We’re pro-protein

Lots of foods contain protein, from meat and fish to eggs, nuts and seeds. It’s a molecule that helps our bodies in so many ways, from giving our tissue and organs their shape, to helping us lose weight. It’s a great source of energy, helps us to build muscles, boosts our immune systems and makes our bones stronger. It does all of this for us humans when we digest it, and it does all of this for dogs too. That’s why we make sure that our kibble, wet food and treats are packed full of protein.

And in dogs especially, good levels of protein can help to maintain a healthy coat and skin, and it also plays a vital role in the development of puppies to young dogs, helping their bones and muscles to grow strong. There’s really no downside to your dog getting the right amount of protein in their diet.
