    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    1. Duck
    2. Chicken Meal
    3. Chicken
    4. Brown Rice
    5. Pearled Barley

    Duck is a good and tasty start, but keep in mind on this ingredient rank list, it factors in the water content, which is roughly about 70% or more water.

    Chicken meal is rendered parts from grinding carcasses and/or remains after the main meat is removed. There are pros and cons to meal. Its advantage is it provides lots of protein for a relatively lower cost and contains low moisture content relative to straight forward named meat ingredients. However, it goes through an extensive heating and processing to ensure it is safe to eat. Not much flavor is preserved and other nutrients are wiped out.

    Chicken is another good meat protein to have up high in the ingredient list.

    Brown rice is good source of fiber and contains more nutrients than white rice. It does contain a high amount of carbohydrates.

    Pearled  barley is a cereal grain that provides a good source of fiber and contains eight out of the ten essential amino acids for dogs. Do note, it is rich in carbohydrates.

    Other Ingredients to be Aware of

    Oatmeal is ground oat groats, which are high in carbohydrates, and offer protein and fiber too.

    Potatoes are a starchy food, thus it does contributes carbohydrates. Notably it offers a good source of fiber, vitamin C B6, and potassium.
