Protein is the essential ingredient that leads to a healthy canine. Proteins help with basic body functions including cellular regeneration, tissue maintenance, hormone and enzyme production, and it assists in generating healthy energy. With this in mind, not all proteins are created equal. Factors affecting the quality of proteins include the source and the digestibility of proteins for a dog.
Meat-based proteins, also called animal proteins, have an amino acid profile that is considered to be a complete protein for dogs. On the flip side, plant proteins are considered to be incomplete as the amino acid profile does not fulfill the daily requirements a dog needs for optimal health.
Grass fed, no antibiotics, no hormones
Liver is a nutritional powerhouse, chock a block full of protein, vitamins and minerals to help fuel your pooch. It is also one of the main organs in detoxification where environmental toxins like heavy metals, pesticides and even medications go to be processed. Animals that are grass fed and not given antibiotics are exposed to much lower levels of environmental toxins, and are generally much healthier due to their nutrient rich, biologically appropriate diet. We only use liver from grass fed, antibiotic-free cows to minimize your dog’s consumption of environmental toxins that could pose as a health risk.
