Venison is a good start and source of protein with all the essential amino acids for dogs, but keep in mind on this ingredient rank list, it factors in the water content, which is roughly about 70% or more water.
Green and Red Lentils offers protein, but the amino acid profile is not balanced for dogs. Also, it is high in carbohydrates, but this includes dietary fiber too.
Peas are a good source of fiber and protein, but note that it does contribute carbohydrates.
