First 5 Ingredients:
- Herring fish meal
- Garbanzo beans
- Menhaden fish meal
Cod is a good start by offering protein and essential fatty acids, but keep in mind on this ingredient rank list, it factors in the water content when added, which is roughly about 70% or more water.
Herring fish meal is processed Herring fish parts and bones that are grounded down. It provides protein and Omega-3 fatty acids.
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.
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.
Menhaden fish meal provides protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. Menhaden refers to a specific fish that is relatively small.
Other Ingredients to be Aware of
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.
Tapioca or Tapioca starch (also known as tapioca flour) is high in carbohydrates and calories. Beyond this, it does not offer much nutrients, fiber, or protein. This ingredient is a poor choice for average dog’s diet.
Rosemary oil or Rosemary extract has a few health benefits and can be found in various dog food brands. One of them is an antioxidant. It can also improve or be a stimulant to the circulatory system. However, some say it is associated with epileptic seizure for some dogs. There is no concrete evidence of this, thus we suggest be caution about it and avoid it if your dog had any past seizures or instability.
