Proteins

For promoting growth, gestation, lactation and physical effort

Cats and dogs require a lot of proteins.Some physiological conditions are more demanding than others: generation or regeneration phenomena like growth, gestation, lactation and physical effort for example.

Proteins are molecules made up of amino acids in a predefined chain that determine their nature and their roles. Amino acids, which are produced by the degradation of dietary proteins in the digestive tract, then serve as a basis of the body’s synthesis of the proteins it needs to build or regenerate its organs and structures, convey certain molecules, send messages from one organ to another (hormones) and combat disease (antibodies), among other things.

Proteins are found in concentrated form in animal products (meat, fish, eggs, dairy products) and some vegetable products (cereal gluten, lentils, peas, soy, yeast). The cereals added to the composition of dog or cat food also help furnish proteins.
