Animals have unique physiological structures, and therefore they need specific food and nutrients to remain in optimal health. No longer considered just animals, household pets are family members who require special attention. Filling the need, the pet food industry has grown tremendously over the years.
Thought to be derived from several wild species of mammals, dogs are domesticated carnivorous animals that now enjoy pride of place in American homes. “Man’s best friend” is a perfect companion who can live a long active life if properly cared for. Just like human beings, dogs need carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and water in a balanced diet to stay healthy. Unfortunately, most dog foods are not necessarily ideal. In fact, there have been claims that some pet foods contain meat and other ingredients unfit for animal consumption.
Dogs can tolerate plant-based food, but because they are essentially meat eaters, dogs need a good amount of meat protein in their diets for their unique systems. Like people, dogs (and cats) suffer from the same conditions related to aging. So they may benefit from certain nutrients.
Carnitine is an essential nutrient. An amino acid found in meat, it is especially important for the heart and vascular system.1 Vitamin E also has been shown to be important for your dog’s health.2,3
