Terriers are bred to hunt. They are bred to kill and often times eat: rats, mice, squirrels and other vermin. Genetically, the Parson Russell 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 Parson Russell 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 Parson Russell Terrier. Originally from England, the Parson Russell Terrier can make the best of its 13 to 15 years on a high-protein dog food that's full of the nutrients the Parson Russell Terrier needs but without the empty calories that could lead to weight gain.

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