Terriers are bred to hunt. They are bred to kill and often times eat: rats, mice, squirrels and other vermin. Genetically, the Cairn Terrier, part of the AKC's Terrier Group, are pre-disposed to a high-protein diet. Combine this fact with the reality that most terriers (including the Cairn Terrier) today struggle with weight gain due to lack of exercise, and you'll see why we recommend a high-protein dog food that's correctly proportioned for your Cairn Terrier. Originally from Scotland, the Cairn Terrier can make the best of its 13 to 15 years on a high-protein dog food that's full of the nutrients the Cairn Terrier needs but without the empty calories that could lead to weight gain.

The Cairn Terrier is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Cairn Terrier 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 a moderately active Cairn Terrier. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Cairn Terrier. 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 Cairn Terrier is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a moderately active Cairn Terrier.
