Unique Protein Diets That Benefit Your Dogís Wellbeing



Quote:
Have you ever thought about adding a unique protein to your dogís diet? Hereís why you should, and a few novel proteins to try!

Proteins are the building blocks of life, and its importance in your petís life is just as great as it is in yours. Proteins play a vital role in every biological process Ė the amino acids from which proteins are made are what make up a major proportion of our petís cells. When you think about it that way, you understand the importance of the right proteins in your dogís diet.

Dogs love the taste of meat, and by offering your pet protein from multiple sources, mealtime is made even more enjoyable and tasty. Whether itís in the kibble, sprinkled on top as a mixer, or given as a treat, unique protein sources can be a part of your petís complete and balanced diet.

What can you do to ensure your pet has a healthy, palatable diet? You can start by exposing your dog to a variety of unique proteins. And what dog wouldnít prefer a high-quality meal packed with exclusive proteins, full of nutritional benefits, exceptional taste and delectable aromas. Thatís why Merrick has a complete line of dry and wet formulas that showcase a host of novel proteins.

A mix of unique proteins in your dogís diet can also help him maintain a shiny coat and keep skin healthy, thanks to the Omega fatty acids it contains. Every protein source contains different levels of amino acids that are broken down and used for all aspects of your dogís growth and development. But not all proteins are created equal Ė some are better for pets than others. And you want to make sure your pooch enjoys the benefits of a high-quality diet rich in animal-derived protein.

I'm so glad I saw this. Was talking with two colleagues and then a Costco employee yesterday and all three feed their dogs Merrick! Bowie is finishing up his first bag of adult small breed NOW kibble and I'm wondering if I should get a second bag or switch to something else, any ideas?

I have been alternating between Orijen Red and Acana Grasslands. It's the only kibble my two will eat.

Thanks, I'll look those up. I know that kibble isn't the best, but am hoping for a good brand. Had no idea NOW wasn't good, kind of surprised as the 12lb bag was close to $50, and the breeder suggested it. My daughter just started college and my son is in line, so needless to say, we are trying to save money. Can anyone suggest any other ideas please? I do want to do everything I can for Bowie.

My two only eat a small amount of kibble. I shred a little chicken breast or brown ground sirloin with a chopped or mashed vegetable and mix a little kibble in for a meal. I keep a small bowl of kibble out, but they rarely touch it.

Molly has been doing very well on Nature's Variety lamb and peas kibble. I top it with either freeze dried or frozen raw lamb mixers. I add some water to it before feeding. She loves it!
