Amino Acids

What Is An Amino Acid?

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein in all living things. Proteins are made up of chains of amino acids. There are non-essential ones (called that because they can be produced in the liver) and essential (or indispensable) ones that must be provided through the diet. A high-protein diet for your dog is critical.

Essential amino acids

Your dog needs a total of 22 amino acids, the building blocks the dog uses to make muscles, hair, skin and enzymes. Twelve of them are synthesized in their bodies; the other ten must be provided through diet.

  • Arginine: turkey, beef, lamb, pork, chicken, goat, venison
  • Histidine: beef, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, goat, fish, eggs
  • Isoleucine: beef, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, goat, fish, eggs
  • Leucine: beef, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, goat, fish, eggs
  • Lysine: beef, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, goat, fish, eggs
  • Methionine: beef, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, goat, fish, eggs
