DOGS NEED PROTEIN

 

First of all, Dogs need protein, and there are lots of protein source you can give to your dogs. There are two kinds of meat, red and white. Red meat has more protein than white meat. For example, beef has high quality protein. Basically, 100 grams beef includes 32 grams high quality protein and 6 grams fat. There is one thing you should know about fat. All animals need fat to maintain their lives, and meat is very good source of fat.

 

Can dogs eat chicken? Yes, chicken meat is another good source of protein, and it is very affordable if we compare it with beef. 100 grams chicken meat includes 26 grams protein, and this is also high quality protein. One additional property of chicken meat is that dogs can easily digest this kind of white meat. Moreover, chicken meat has less fat than beef. If your dogs have health problem with the heart, then you should give them chicken meat instead of beef.

 

There are also fish, duck, lamb, turkey, and egg to provide high quality protein to your dogs. You should add these high quality protein and fat sources to their homemade food. For example, fish are very important because fish has omega-3 and omega-6 oils which are very healthy and nutritious. These oils help your dogs grow and be healthy. Eggs are also important protein source because of their additional ingredients such as amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Please be aware that you should cook all the meats before giving to your dogs because of some bacterias and parasites that live on raw meats.
