    Hello everyone : ) I have an 8 year old Havanese, he’s in great shape! Not too sure if his breed needs the high protein content of what seems the majority of the editors picks have. Maybe something a little more rounded? Not quite sure so any suggestions so that I can get an idea of what to look for would be great! Thanks in advance.

    Hi Anthony

    Dog food is made up of protein, fat, and carbohydrates. If you lower protein, then fat and/or carbs must go up. Usually, fat level is tied to protein level, so if protein goes down, so does fat. It’s carbs that usually go up. Dogs don’t need carbs and you have to feed more of them to make up for the fact that fat has double the calories. That is a lose/lose for dogs that were made to feed off of fresh protein.
