There are many benefits of chicken in dog food from an energy boost to promoting bone health which is why our number one ingredient is chicken.
Chicken is so important to us that we only use human-grade chicken in our dog food. Yes, good enough for us to eat – we should know, Mr Salter has sampled it!
Usually, the chicken found in dog food can be the bits human’s don’t want but we know your dog deserves better.
Chicken is a win, win. It’s a tasty treat for your dog and is also packed full of physical benefits for your dog too.
4 benefits of chicken in dog food
Good source of energy
Chicken is lean meat and is perfect for our canine friends. Chicken provides a big source of energy for dogs. Dogs need protein as their main energy source and chicken is exactly that. Any excess protein that surpasses the need for muscle tissue maintenance is used for energy.
Builds lean muscle mass
Chicken helps your dog to build lean muscle mass. Muscle mass breaks down as your dog is active or ages and needs to be replaced. Chicken is the perfect solution which aids them to keep healthy and feeling good.
Provides omega 6 fatty acids
Chicken provides omega 6 fatty acids which help your dog to shine. They help your dog to sustain healthy skin and a shiny coat. He will be turning heads in the park!
Great source of amino acids
Put simply, amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Ten of the twenty-two amino acids need to be acquired through diet or supplements for dogs. Dietary sources of essential amino acids are found within proteins, with the highest concentrations generally found in animal protein like chicken.
Alongside the benefits of chicken in our dog food, your dog will find many benefits from the other ingredients we use too. You may wonder if things like olive oil is good for dogs but we’re giving you peace of mind because our foods are packed with good quality proteins and high-quality ingredients.
At Salters Pet Food we guarantee that we don’t use any chemicals, colours, or any flavour enhancers – that means peace of mind for you and a nutritional balance for your dog.
