High Protein Dry Dog Food
Protein is an essential building block that supports your dog’s muscles. Choosing a high-protein dog food gives them additional nutrients to help them through their daily activities and their recovery.
What is High Protein Dog Food?
Any dog food that is over 27% protein is classed as high-protein dog food. It is designed to support muscle growth and health without additional calories. Our high-protein dry dog food contains 28% protein from black soldier fly larvae.
Why Should You Make The Switch?
A healthy, balanced canine diet should be rich in protein. After all, it contains amino acids that are crucial for the growth of muscles, new skin cells and hair. Not to mention, protein assists in creating essential hormones and enzymes that regulate bodily functions and keep the immune system strong.
What Types of Dogs Can Benefit from a High-Protein Diet?
Our protein-packed food provides a quality meal no matter your pup’s dietary requirements. Here are some common types of dogs that love high-protein diets:
Sustainable High-Protein Dog Food
We believe in sustainable processes. Instead of using traditional extrusion methods requiring high temperatures and energy consumption, we manufacture our dog food using cutting-edge cold-pressing techniques. As a result, we can limit the environmental impact of our products and maximise the amino acids and nutrients your dog consumes.
We also source all our ingredients from UK farms to look after the farmers that produce them, reduce our reliance on international shipping and prevent carbon emissions. We use the wonky produce supermarkets typically reject; it is still delicious and would go to waste otherwise. Finally, all our packaging is completely recyclable.
Using Insect Protein
Our high-protein dog food uses black soldier fly larvae, which are packed with essential amino acids and nutrients. Producing 1 kg of protein with insects releases 100 times less greenhouse gas than farming beef and uses 2000 times less water.
Insect protein also has a higher digestibility than traditional sources like chicken or beef. Therefore your pooch receives all the additional protein included in our food.

How We Compare to the Rest
When choosing between the various available high-protein dog foods, you should consider the ratio between fat and protein. Choose a low ratio to deliver lean protein without excess fat. Our dog food has 39% protein, and, as insect protein is easier to digest than chicken or beef, your pup receives more of the added protein. Often, they cannot digest and benefit from the added protein from other foods with traditional ingredients.
What’s more, by selling directly to you, we can offer the best rates so you do not have to break the bank to afford quality, high-protein dry dog food.
Very impressed that even our fussy older dog who doesn’t like most treats finds bug bakes food absolutely irresistible (caught him trying to steal it from the kitchen!). Aside from that, it seems really healthy and high quality compared to most dry dog food. Love the ethos of the company too, doing something good for the planet!
It is enlightening to have finally found a dog food that capitalises on the environmental benefits of insect protein! My dog has just finished off her sample bag, she loves the food, and I will most definitely be getting her more. This is an amazing dog food that more than meets the demands of my farm dog who lives a highly active life. I am glad I have found Bug Bakes and I strongly recommend that others try out their dog food.
My Westie loves these. They are great for dogs who need a grain free diet, she loves the crunchiness. They can be varied by adding moisture and for example, some mashed sweet potato. Loads of possibilities. A big bonus is how easy the protein is for them to digest.
What is the best way to transition my dog onto a high-protein diet without making them sick?
Whenever you change your dog’s diet, you should transition slowly to avoid illness. Here is a plan that your can follow:
Day 1-2: 25% new diet, 75% old diet
Day 3-4: 50% new diet, 50% old diet
Day 5-6: 75% new diet, 25% old diet
Day 7> 100% new diet
What protein content is considered high in dry dog food?
