First 5 Ingredients:
- chicken meal
- steel-cut oats
- deboned chicken
- whole potato
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 with the essential amino acids that a dog needs 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.
Oats are a cereal grain that is high in carbohydrates and a good portion of this is comprised of dietary fiber. It also offers protein too amongst other nutrients.
Chicken is a good 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.
Potatoes are a starchy food, thus it does contributes carbohydrates. Notably it offers a good source of fiber, vitamin C B6, and potassium.
Peas are a good source of fiber, protein, and other nutrients too, but note that it does contribute carbohydrates from its starch.
