Choosing the Best High-Protein Silky Terrier Dog Food
In regard to weight, the Silky Terrier is a very small dog generally weighing around 10 pounds. The Silky Terrier is also considered a very small dog in regard to height, with an average height of 9-10 inches. If you're trying to figure out the optimal dog food for your Silky Terrier, you should definitely consider the option of a high-protein dog food like those available from Spot & Tango. The Silky Terrier is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Toy Group' with roots originating back to Australia. The keenly alert, friendly and quick Silky Terrier with an alert and responsive demeanor, generally does particularly well on a high-protein dog food. This is thanks, in part to, its very small size combined with its moderately active energy levels.

Why Breeds, Like the Silky Terrier in the AKC Toy Group May Need a High-Protein Dog Food
The perfect dog for the millions of people that live in the city, the American Kennel Club's 'Toy Group' make up breeds like the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, the Toy Fox Terrier and of course the Silky Terrier. But does a dog of such small size truly need a high-protein dog food? Yes, we believe small dogs like those in the AKC's Toy group, including the Silky Terrier, can benefit from a high-protein diet. For example, take the Silky Terrier small frame of 9-10 inches and weight of only around 10 pounds. If put on a diet that's full of fillers versus lean proteins, the Silky Terrier could easily become obese or, due to lack of nutrient dense high-protein, become a shadow of their typically friendly, keenly alert, quick self!

Why A Moderately Active Silky Terrier May Need a High-Protein Dog Food
The Silky Terrier is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Silky 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 Silky Terrier. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Silky 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 Silky 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 Silky Terrier.
Does a Very Small Silky Terrier Still Benefit From a High-Protein Dog Food?
