This table is intended as a guide only and exact feeding amounts should be varied according to your dog's age, sex, breed, condition and activity levels. Please note that feeding amounts should be based on the ideal adult body weight for your dog. Adult dogs should be fed twice per day. When introducing VetSpec into your dog's diet we advise that this is done gradually over a period of 5-10 days until it replaces all other food. Fresh drinking water should always be available.

Technical Focus

Protein and Amino Acids

Amino acids, like lysine and methionine, are the building blocks of proteins, which form the structure of muscle, organs and many parts of the dog's body. About half of the twenty or so amino acids are "essential" i.e. the dog's body is unable to make them itself. Young dogs require protein to build the structures within the body and adults need it to maintain the function and maintenance of all their tissues.

The "quality" of protein is important in dog food and meat, like chicken, is an excellent source of high quality protein with good amino acid profiles. If protein is deficient in the diet, or of poor quality, adult dogs will lose lean body tissue and immature dogs will exhibit decreased weight gain and impaired growth and development.
