A Dog's Diet

At our company, we pride ourselves on exceptional quality. From the initial concept to the final product, our attention to detail is second to none. In an ever-evolving industry, Red Dirt Dog Food has set the bar for innovation and delivery. Understanding your dog's needs is essential to providing the perfect diet.

 

Your dog’s diet should be high quality and well balanced.  Protein, fat, and carbohydrates are important. A high-density nutrient blend of dog food provides quality dog food with less mess to clean later. One of the first things you should look for on a dog food label is the statement “formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles.” The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) has strict requirements to make sure that a product is complete and balanced for dogs.

The two numbers represent the protein-to-fat ratio of the food. 26% Protein and 16% fat. 

Protein: Is crucial for multiple reasons when it comes to your dog and provides:

  • The energy required in repairing and building muscle tissues.

  • The ability to grow new skin cells, hair, nails.

  • It creates the hormones and enzymes needed to function normally.

  • A strong immune system.


The best sources of protein are chicken & fish, both key components of Red Dirt Dog Food.

Fat: Dogs burn fat before any other nutrient in their body. Fats are a dense source of energy that is necessary to keep your dog active and healthy for a long time. Fat is the key nutrient to maintain a shiny coat and can even prevent skin disorders. Did you know those fat nutrients are key to their sense of smell too?
