I was doing some research on high protein canned dog foods. It looks like Wellness CORE comes in the highest at 12%.
While 12% protein is quite a bit higher than most other canned foods which average 8%, there are times when a high protein food is just the ticket, such as during sustained levels of stress or times of high energy demand.
Some examples of these times are:
Performance sports, competitions or showing
Recovery from surgery or illness
Breeding, lactating and weaning
On the other hand, a higher protein food also means higher levels of Calcium and Phosphates. Higher levels of these nutrients are usually not a good idea for dogs with special health conditions.
