Review Summary:

In this recipe, chicken, salmon, and chicken liver offer the essential amino acids that a dog needs. Liver itself has high nutritional value for various minerals and vitamins. In addition, there are a good variety of wholesome vegetables and fruits that provides a spread of nutrition. This recipe is notably relatively high in dietary-fiber, Omega-3 fatty acid, and protein too. Mineral supplement added are “protienate” to aid better body absorption. The only small complaint is lacks nutritional information for vitamins and minerals, which would be helpful to know. Overall, with the diverse wholesome ingredients offerings, this recipe is excellent

    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    1. Chicken
    2. Eggs
    3. Pea protein
    4. Oats
    5. Vegetable broth

    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.

    Eggs are a good source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acid.

    Pea protein is from processed peas with most of the starch removed. It is a good source of protein, with almost no carbohydrates. Also, there isn’t any dietary fiber either.

    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.

    Vegetable broth is not high in nutritional value but does add a little bit of flavori

    Other Ingredients to be Aware of

    Pearl barley is a cereal grain with its hull and bran removed. Despite losing the bran, which is rich in nutrients and fiber, it still provides a good source of fiber from the inner kernel and contains eight out of the ten essential amino acids for dogs. Do note, it is rich in carbohydrates.

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

    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.
