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:


When our puppies are growing, they need plenty of protein to develop strong muscles.

Working Dogs

Our high-protein dry dog food is ideal for dogs that work hard and, therefore, require greater amounts of protein in their diet, such as search and rescue dogs.

Senior Dogs

As your dog gets older, it struggles to maintain muscle mass but retains more fat. Therefore, a high-protein, low-calorie diet conserves muscle without increasing weight.

Overweight Dogs

If your dog is overweight and on a diet, you should increase the percentage of protein they eat so that they do not lose muscle.

Pregnant Dogs

During pregnancy, your pooch requires higher levels of protein to meet the evolving demands of their body and support the pup.

Injured or Ill Dogs

If the worst occurs and your dog becomes sick or injured, a high-protein diet can support their body to speed up the recovery process.

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.

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!

Chloe Hequet

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.

Matthew Carrington

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.
