Review Summary:

This salmon recipe starts off strong with salmon, salmon meal, and menhaden fish meal. These fish sources provide good protein with all the essential amino acids that a dog needs, and its combined amount is reflected in the relatively high protein levels. Its Omega-6 fatty acid is relatively high too. 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, especially if you are looking for good Omega fatty acid content.

Pros

  • Provides both Omega-3 and 6 fatty acid content

    1. Salmon
    2. Salmon meal
    3. Menhaden fish meal

    Salmon meal is processed salmon parts and bones that are grounded down. It too provides protein with the essential amino acids a dog needs  and Omega-3 fatty acids.

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

    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

    Other Ingredients to be Aware of
