Milk Protein: The Facts


K9 Highland Dog Chew is 63.1% pure milk protein! 

Today we are going to be talking to you about the benefits of milk protein for your dog.

First of all, you may be wondering why proteins are good for your dog and the answer is simple; proteins are necessary for all aspects of growth and development and are very important in your dog’s structural makeup and his/her immune system.

Now for the “sciencey” part, we will keep it simple!

The “Biological Value” of a protein is a number value that measures how well the body can absorb and utilize a protein. The higher the Biological Value of the protein the better because it means your dog is absorbing and utilizing the protein more efficiently.

Let us put things in simpler terms by giving some examples:

Whey has the highest biological value at 104 closely followed by egg, which has a value of 100. Milk protein comes in at 92, beef is around 78 and meat and bone meal are around 50.
As you can see, although all proteins are good for your dog, not all of them are as beneficial as each other.
Milk protein is in the top three highest biological values for proteins and when we remember that K9 Highland Dog Chew is made up of 63.1% milk protein it is easy to see why it is so good for your dog.

We use fresh non-fat cow’s milk to make our chews which means your dog will be getting a very healthy yet tasty treat packed with beneficial milk protein.
