What is protein for dogs?

Protein for dogs is a complex system of amino acids that work together to support life.
There are 20 different amino acids that join together to make all types of proteins.
All dogs have the natural ability to make their own amino acids… except for ten extremely
unique essential amino acids that absolutely must come from the diet. It's essential
that their diet provide these: Arginine, Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine,Threonine, Tryptophane, and Valine.
(Below you can read about the function
of each essential amino acid. Marked in red bold type)

A complete protein source is one that provides all of the essential amino acids. High quality
proteins sources are Animal-based foods; for example, meat, poultry, fish, milk and eggs are
considered complete protein sources. Here is a list of our ingredients that contain
naturally the required essentials for your dog.

Nutrients
Essential and None-
1.. Protein
2 Alanine
None-Essential
Manufacture by the dog body
3 Arginine
Is a basic amino acid, and it is a component of most proteins. It is synthesized in the body, and it is essential for proper functioning, especially when the body experiences stress, malnutrition, illness or injury
Essential
4 Aspartic acid
None-Essential

5  Cystine
None-Essential
Manufacture by the dog body
6  Glutamic acid
None-Essential
Manufacture by the dog body
7  Glycine
None-Essential
Manufacture by the dog body
8  Histidine
Is an essential amino acid, It is one of the basic amino acids due to its aromatic nitrogen-heterocyclic imidazole side chain. This amino acid is metabolized into the neurotransmitter histamine and the set of genes that produce the enzymes responsible for histidine synthesis.
Essential
9  Isoleucine
Isoleucine is essential for the production and maintenance of body proteins. It also regulates metabolism and the functioning of the thymus gland in the neck, spleen, and pituitary glands and is useful in forming haemoglobin.
Essential
10   Leucine
Leucine cannot be made in the body, but it is easily available from foods. Therefore a leucine deficiency is rare. A leucine deficiency is characterized by feelings of fatigue, headaches, dizziness and cramps. In addition, there is muscle weakness, irritability, frequent infections, slow wound healing and feelings of depression.
Essential
11   Lysine
Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means that the body cannot synthesize it and must obtain it through food sources.
Essential
12   Methionine
Methionine is a protein-based amino acid which assists with metabolic function, breaks down fat, and is the primary source of sulfur in the body.
Essential
13   Phenylalanine
Phenylalanine is the natural, essential amino acid found in proteins. Although our dogs bodies cannot manufacture it. It is found in foods that are high in protein, like, poultry, fish, eggs, meat, and dairy.
Essential
14   Proline
None-Essential
Manufacture by the dog body
15   Serine
None-Essential
Manufacture by the dog body
16  Threonine
Threonine (T or Thr) is an amino acid, or a molecule that is one of the building blocks of proteins. It is an essential amino acid, meaning that it can’t be made by the body and therefore must be acquired through the diet.
Essential
17   Tryptophan
Tryptophan is one of the 10 essential amino acids that the body uses to synthesize the proteins it needs. It's well-known for its role in the production of nervous system messengers, especially those related to relaxation, restfulness, and sleep.
Essential
18 Tyrosine
None-Essential
Manufacture by the dog body
19  Valine
Valine is an amino acid necessary for human and dog health. It is known as a branched chain amino acid (BCAA). This amino acid functions as a stimulant and promotes muscle repair.
Essential
20 Hydroxyproline
None-Essential
