Review Summary:

This recipe offers tremendous protein levels. With fish and beef as the first two ingredients, there is a lot of protein that cover all the essential amino acids that a dog needs. Also, the fish is one source that helps with the relatively high Omega-3 fatty acid offering. There are a variety of vegetables and fruits, but most are very low on the ingredient list to be considered significant. The minerals are protienate to aid better body absorption. Overall, this recipe is outstanding and is an excellent candidate to consider.

    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    1. Ocean Fish Meal
    2. Beef
    3. Pea Protein
    4. Potatoes
    5. Canola Oil

    Ocean fish meal is processed fish parts and bones that are grounded down. It provides protein and Omega-3 fatty acids

    Beef 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.

    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.

    Potatoes are a starchy food, thus it does contributes carbohydrates. Notably it offers a good source of 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.

    Other Ingredients to be Aware of

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