Review Summary:

Menhaden Fish Meal offers good meat protein with a good amino acid profile that dogs need. Also, it is good for healthy Omega-3 fatty acid, and this is reflected in the reported relatively high level content. The next few ingredients are rice or rice related products, which are good sources of fiber, but are rich in other non-dietary fiber carbohydrates. If you look at the non-dietary carb level estimation, it is relatively high, which is something to consider for dogs that should not consume too much of it. On the contrast, the dietary-fiber is relatively high at the same time, which is good for the digestive system. For the rest of the ingredient list it lacks vegetables and/or fruits. Overall, this recipe is average.

    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    1. Menhaden Fish Meal
    2. Brown Rice
    3. Rice Flour
    4. Rice Bran
    5. Chicken Fat

    Menhaden fish meal is a fish meal that provides protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. Menhaden refers to a specific fish that is relatively small. Just like all meats, the protein from fish is a well balanced amino acid profile for dogs.

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

    Rice flour is made from removal of the husk of rice, and then the raw rice is grounded down to a flour. The final product itself is high in carbohydrates.

    Rice bran is the outer layer of whole grain brown rice; it surrounds the endosperm. This part of the rice is rich in dietary fiber and contains other carbohydrates too.

    Chicken fat is a good for dogs in the right amount, since dogs can effectively metabolize fat and use it for various body system functions, including for energy.
