Consider the protein levels of the food you regularly feed your dog. Unless your have a sled dog, or something similar, that expends enormous amounts of energy regularly, healthy protein levels should be anywhere from 18%-22% for the average dog. Higher levels are for serious working dogs who need that level of protein for what they do (like sheep herding dogs). HERE is a good source from Doctors Foster and Smith in deciding what is appropriate for your dog...and also, always consult your trusted veterinarian.
