Learn MoreDogs are considered carnivores because they have a short intestinal tract that allows them to digest Meat efficiently, yet it doesn’t allow them to digest plant matter to well, unlike herbivores who have a very long digestive tract. Because amino acid profiles contained in animal and plant proteins vary, It’s important to know that ANIMAL PROTEINS are considered “Complete” proteins for dogs and cats, while PLANT PROTEINS are considered “Incomplete” proteins. Proteins are the building blocks of life, and that’s why it is so important to feed your dog with foods based on Animal Protein.

The 3rd, ALA, is a (Short Chain FA) plant source omega-3 found in Flaxseed, Canola and Soy Oils. ALA must be converted to DHA or EPA before it is of any nutritional value to a dog. As dogs have not evolved to do this conversion, ALA Omega-3 from plants is considered "inactive" and not Biologically suitable for dogs or cats.
