Review Summary:

The first ingredient is Salmon meal as one would hope for given the recipe name. Salmon is good for a protein that offers a complete amino acid profile for dogs. Also, it offers healthy Omega 6 fatty acids. Ocean fishmeal further down the ingredient helps supplement the Salmon offerings. There are peas that offer other nutrients. Sweet potatoes particularly have beta-carotene which are good for the eyes. A bunch of the fruits and vegetables are too low to be counted of significance. The minerals are “proteinate”, which helps the body to better absorb them. Overall, this recipe is decent but not stellar by any means. It receives an above average rating.

Pros

  • Provides Omega-3 and 6 fatty acid content information
  • Chelated / Proteinate minerals for better body absorption
  • Cons

  • Added fruits and veggies are very low on the ingredient list and have low significance

    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    1. Salmon meal
    2. Sweet potatoes
    3. Peas
    4. Potatoes
    5. Canola oil

     

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

    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.

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

    Canola oil is low in saturated fat and offers both Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids.  If it matter to you, then please note, it is very likely sourced from genetically modified crops.
