First 5 Ingredients:
- Chicken Broth
- Dried Egg
Chicken broth is a tasty alternative to just water.
Dried eggs are a good source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acid.
Turkey , Duck, and Chicken are a good 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.
Other Ingredients to be Aware of
Potato starch contains high amounts of calories and carbohydrate.
Caramel color is not necessary as its only purpose is for aesthetics. The downside is it contains advanced gycation end products, which can result in premature aging.
Tapioca or Tapioca starch (also known as tapioca flour) is high in carbohydrates and calories. It is good for energy, but of course too much carbs will go towards storage as fat. Beyond this, it does not offer much nutrients, fiber, or protein. This ingredient is a poor choice for average dog’s diet.
