Review Summary:

This recipe starts off with a nice mix of chicken and fish meal. Both provide a good source of protein with all the essential amino acids that a dog needs, and its protein level is relatively high. Its Omega-6 fatty acid content is relatively high too. In addition, fish meal is rich in healthy Omega-3 fatty acid. Below these ingredients there are a few but not too many vegetables before you hit the added vitamins and minerals supplements. The minerals are “proteinate” to aid absorption by the body. Overall, this recipe is good and above average.

Pros

  • Provides both Omega-3 and 6 fatty acid content
  • Relatively higher in Omega-6 fatty acid
  • Relatively higher in protein

    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    1. Chicken
    2. Menhaden fish meal
    3. Lentils
    4. Peas
    5. Potatoes

    Chicken 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.

    Menhaden meal is a fish meal that provides protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. Menhaden refers to a specific fish that is relatively small.

    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, protein, and other nutrients too, but note that it does contribute carbohydrates from its starch.

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