Amino acids are organic compounds that are classified in various ways. They are a big part of healthy muscles, cells and tissues and form the building blocks to an array of proteins .
Amino acids are important in our pet’s menu as some are considered “essential”, as they cannot be created in an animal’s body, so must be consumed in their pet-food. What is essential to one animal species may be different to another so it’s important to read your pet-food label.
