Review Summary:

This recipe leads off with Chicken and Chicken meal that provides meat protein with all the essential amino acids a dog needs. Further down there are more meal meats, and Whey that help make the protein level relatively high. There are numerous vegetables and fruits, but they are very low on the ingredient and even below “salt’. Thus, their nutritional contribution is likely insignificant. The added minerals are “protienate” to help aid the body to absorb them. The dietary fiber level is relatively high too. Disappointingly Wysong has not taken the extra step to provide mineral and vitamin content info nor calorie values too. Overall, with a large variety of wholesome ingredients, and good protein levels that mainly come from meats, this recipe is an excellent candidate to consider for your dog.

    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    1. Chicken
    2. Chicken meal
    3. Brown rice
    4. Oat groats
    5. Turkey meal

    Chicken is a good start and source of protein that effectively covers each of the essential amino acids a dog needs, but keep in mind on this ingredient rank list, it factors in the water content, which is roughly about 70% or more water.

    Chicken meal and Turkey  meal are rendered parts from grinding carcasses and/or remains after the main meat is removed. There are pros and cons to meal. Its advantage is it provides lots of protein with the essential amino acids that a dog needs for a relatively lower cost and contains low moisture content relative to straight forward named meat ingredients. However, it goes through an extensive heating and processing to ensure it is safe to eat. Not much flavor is preserved and other nutrients are wiped out.

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

    Oat grouts are hull grained oats. They contain carbohydrates, and offer protein and fiber too.

    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.

    Dried beet pulp is a source of fiber, but the saponins it contains may cause irritation in the gastrointestinal tract. If you choose a dog food with this ingredient, then keep a careful watch on your dog and consider discontinuing use if there are any signs of discomfort or irregularities.

    Whey is the liquid left over after milk has been curdled and strained in the process of making cheese or casein. Whey provides protein, but do note it also contains carbohydrates in form of simple sugars. Just like milk, whey does contain lactose too.

    Rosemary oil or Rosemary extract has a few health benefits and can be found in various dog food brands. One of them is an antioxidant. It can also improve or be a stimulant to the circulatory system. However, some say it is associated with epileptic seizure for some dogs. There is no concrete evidence of this, thus we suggest be caution about it and avoid it if your dog had any past seizures or instability.
