You need to pay attention not only to the amounts of protein, carbohydrates, and fats in a dog's diet, but also the digestibility of the nutrients. Carbohydrates such as well-cooked grains, starches, and sugars, aid in digestion.
Some types of protein are more digestible or can be broken down and then used by your dog.

An organic or natural dog food is composed primarily of foods from the four food groups and will typically use only natural preservatives.
