Puppies, lactating/gestating mothers, and highly active dogs require more energy. High protein & high fat ensure growing puppies get the nutrients they need to align with their quick growth period as well as help sustain dogs with high energy demands. Working dogs prefer this recipe!
What are the benefits of high protein? Proteins are necessary for all aspects of growth and development. Puppies, active dogs, gestating and lactating dogs, and working dogs often require more protein. What is Chicken Meal? Chicken meal is considered a meat concentrate and contains nearly 300% MORE protein than fresh chicken, which is why we use it in this recipe. Why use chicken fat? It’s a pure fat to use as a quality ingredient because it is high in linoleic acid and is an omega-6 fatty acid that is essential to a pet’s life!
