Love for Lamb
With the start of Spring less than a month away, there is no better protein to celebrate than the lusciousness of lamb. As one of the most chosen meats during the spring months, lamb is not just a protein humans can enjoy but it’s fantastic for your dogs too.
Packed full of wholesome benefits and tasty beyond belief, choosing lamb for your four-legged friend can be a choice this spring your canine companion will adore. Knowing how much our dogs love this moreish meat, we have a range of lamb based treats your dogs will love this spring.
Since the dawn of time, our dogs have loved nothing more in their diets than mouthfuls of meat. Deriving from their ancestral need for all things protein, meat has been a staple ingredient in pet food for centuries. As the majority of big brands pack their dog food with top proteins such as chicken and beef, research is highlighting an increase in allergies and intolerances to these proteins creating a gap in the market for pet food with a difference.
Understanding some pet’s needs for a variety of proteins, some companies are changing the staple meats in wet foods and dry kibble to support diets of those who may have intolerances to chicken and beef. As a lean meat and packed full of vital vitamins for growth and development, here’s why lamb should be the next protein on your pooches plate .
Pawfuls of Protein
Like other red meats, lamb packs a protein punch with our dogs. Essential for muscle management and healthy bodily function, meats containing high protein levels are fantastic for dogs who are particularly active or classed as working dogs.
Proteins found in meat are so fantastic due to levels of amino acids that occur naturally within them. These amino acids are types of fats that support the energy levels within our dogs bodies keeping them fit and healthy all day long. Despite being called fats, these are not to be confused with saturated fats, which are responsible for weight gain and heart problems. Healthy fats can actively contribute to better skin and fur, muscle growth and maintenance and even improved eye and brain health.
Kind on Tummies
Not all proteins are made equally with each one having different effects on your dog’s digestion. Red meat offers more soluble vitamins and minerals such as Zinc and Vitamin B that are helpful in the support of healthy skin, fur and eyes, meaning it’s a pawfect protein to keep your pet’s skin looking and feeling as great as ever.
In addition, lamb is a great source of protein for pets who suffer from allergies to meats like chicken and fish. In its leanest form, lamb is one of the healthiest proteins for your pets and is easily digested due to its lower fat content than other red meats such as beef. If your pet suffers from gas, bloating and inconsistent poops, then making the switch to lamb may benefit their bodies in more ways than one.
