Healthy dog food
for the perfect energy balance
Understanding energy is a key component to understanding nutrition. especially in regards to three areas:
All food provides energy and nutrients, but not all dog food is the same. Vetdiet® dog food is specially formulated to provide a more personalized approach by balancing energy and nutrients to suit breed, age and activity. Selecting the right food for your dog will help ensure you are providing them with optimal nutrition so they can live the fullest life possible.
What is energy?
Energy can be understood as the capacity for work or vigorous activity. Animals, including humans and dogs, get energy from food.
The primary nutrients in food are carbohydrates, protein and fat, which can all provide energy. However, the body processes each one of these nutrients differently through digestion and metabolism.
Energy is usually represented as metabolizable energy (ME) represented in calories or kilocalories per kilogram of food. You will find this on our dog food packages listed as kcal/kg and kcal/cup.
Best dog food for sustained energy
Some breeds of dogs are naturally highly active and some working dogs exert a high level of energy. These dogs require a diet with a higher calorie level from protein and fat, which provides greater sustained energy.
What kind of diet is the best for my active dog?
The body digests and metabolizes energy differently from proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Dog food rich in protein and fat provides better sustained energy to help support higher levels of activity.
Healthy dog food for growing puppies
Different breeds of puppies grow at different rates. That’s why puppies require a diet specially formulated to meet their breed’s specific energy and nutrient needs. A puppy that grows too fast or too slow from overfeeding or underfeeding can experience permanent development defects.

Dog food for puppies must provide the right level of energy with the right balance of nutrients to meet a breed’s specific needs. Vetdiet® has developed specific diets for small breeds, all breeds and large breed puppies. Each formula is balanced to provide optimal levels of nutrients and energy to support the healthy growth of puppies.
