Hot (Yang) Proteins Updated on: March 23rd, 2019

traditional chinese medicine (TCM) teaches that a person's (or animal's) natural energy requires balance that can be achieved through a variety of factors such as food. each animal protein or plant-based ingredient has an energy that can interact with your pet's natural energy - for pets with cool energies (yin), feeding hot proteins (yang) help rebalance their energy to promote health and happiness.

why we feed

pets that run "hot" will frequently seek cool places, such as a cold floor or a place in the shade. symptoms of a "hot" energy dog are: red eyes, red skin, and panting at times when they are not exercising or in excessive heat.

how to feed

balancing a pet's energy is extremely important and the easiest most effective way to do this is by feeding cooling proteins such as: venison, goat and lamb
