A Daily Requirement
Protein is found in meats, eggs, and dairy products, as well as some grains and legumes. The dog’s body can’t store up protein like it can fat and other nutrients, so this nutrient has to be supplied in the daily diet. Depending on the age and activity level of your pet, protein needs will vary. Those animals that work very hard (i.e., hunting dogs, sled dogs, search and rescue dogs, etc.) require more protein.
