Review Summary:

This recipe offers relatively high protein levels, mainly from tuna and salmon, which are good meat sources that provide the needed essential amino acids a dog needs. These fish sources ensure there is healthy Omega-3 fatty acid too. There aren’t too many vegetables, but it does have some for other sources of nutrients. The estimated carbs are relatively low, which is good for dogs that do not require so much of it in their diet. One negative note is it does not provide the Calorie info, which can be helpful to have. Overall, this is an excellent wet dog food.


  • Multiple good meat sources in top five ingredients
  • Relatively higher in protein
  • Cons

  • Does not provide Calories content info

    Editor’s Taste Rating


    Peeling back the foil, one can quickly spot lots of fish pieces, some rice, and pumpkin pieces. The broth is on the ticker side. First says is very welcoming, lots of good cooked fish flavor that is dominated by salmon, and the broth is flavorful too. Overall it tastes great!

    Ingredients Analysis

    1. Salmon
    2. Fish Broth
    3. Water
    4. Tuna
    5. Brown Rice

    Salmon and Tuna offers protein and essential Omega-3 fatty acids, but keep in mind on this ingredient rank list, it factors in the water content when added, which is roughly about 70% or more water.

    Fish broth adds taste

    Water is self explanatory

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

    Other Ingredients to be Aware of

    Sweet potatoes contains an abundant amount of vitamin A and beta–carotene, which are important for the eyes / vision. It is also a good source of fiber and be aware that it does offer carbohydrates, since it is a starchy food type.

    Carrageenans or carrageenins is extracted from red edible seaweeds. For both humans and animal feed it is used in the food industry, for their gelling, thickening, and stabilizing properties. For humans the FDA regulations deemed it to be considered safe for as a direct food additive, and also safe for infant formulas. The EU takes greater precaution by prohibiting its use in infant formula and organic food claims, but it does permit it for other foods. The potential concern for use of Carrageenan is it may be linked to cancer for humans and various animals, but at the present this is still debatable and not clear. Many companies use it in wet dog food, thus it is relatively hard to avoid if you desire to do so.
