The American Foxhound has, like most other hounds, the genetic traits best used for hunting. Whether it's their acute sense of smell to follow a potential prey's trail or their boundless amounts of energy to run them down, a dog within the American Kennel Club's Hound Group would be well suited for a high-protein dog food. Why? Because their bodies need the protein to help rebuild their naturally muscular body while still providing them enough energy. Further, since the American Foxhound isn't used as much today as a hunter versus a pet, weight control is more easily achieved on a high-protein diet.

The American Foxhound is considered an energetic dog and thus your American Foxhound could benefit from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in high-protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of an energetic American Foxhound. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by an energetic dog like the American Foxhound. In fact, dogs that don't receive enough protein can actually experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, a high-protein dog food that's optimal for the American Foxhound is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for an energetic American Foxhound.
