High-protein dog food may provide multiple benefits to a dog’s diet. With increased protein in the diet, dogs develop leaner muscle. This will help the animal maintain a healthy weight and gain energy. Some high-protein dog foods include high levels of fiber to encourage weight loss. High-protein food helps dogs maintain healthy skin, coats, and immune systems. A high-protein food is commonly available as a dry food. Some canned dog food has high-protein formulas, though. Most high-protein dog foods can be bought off the shelf. However, some formulas require approval from a veterinarian for purchase.
