Review Summary:

This recipe offers Wild Boar meat protein that provides the essential amino acids a dog needs. The other main ingredient is brown rice, which does offer nutrients, and dietary fiber. However, the rice is carb heavy and is something to keep an eye on if you are concerned about your dog’s weight. The rest of the ingredient list does not offer much vegetables and/or fruits, and is relatively short. Overall, this recipe is just below average.

Cons

    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    1. Wild Boar
    2. Water for Processing
    3. Brown Rice
    4. Canola Oil
    5. Calcium Carbonate

    Wild Boar  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.

    Water

    Brown rice is good source of fiber and contains more nutrients than white rice. It does contain a high amount of carbohydrates.

    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.

    Calcium carbonate is calcium supplement. It helps with growth and maintenance of bone, teeth, and nails, amongst other parts too.
