Review Summary:

This recipe starts off with a nice mix of bison and lamb meal. Both provide a good source of protein with all the essential amino acids that a dog needs. There is sweet potato that is good for beta-carotene. 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 average.

    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    1. Bison
    2. Lamb meal
    3. Sweet potatoes
    4. Peas
    5. Chickpeas

    Bison 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.

    Lamb meal is processed salmon parts and bones that are grounded down. It provides protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. As a meal it contains less water than just “Salmon” itself.

    Sweet potatoes contains an abundant amount of vitamin A and beta–carotene, which are important for the eyes / vision. It is also a good source of fiber and be aware that it does offer carbohydrates, since it is a starchy food type.

    Peas are a good source of fiber, protein, and other nutrients too, but note that it does contribute carbohydrates from its starch.

    Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) offers protein (not balanced amino acid profile for dogs) and a variety of nutrients. They are also high in carbohydrates and this includes significant dietary fiber.
