Review Summary:

In the top five ingredients you’ll find chicken and dried egg product as a source of meat protein. Pea protein there too to boast the protein level but its amino acid profile is not as good as meat. It would be preferred if the egg product were just egg, since egg product may contain non-egg ingredients. Eggs are also a good source of Omega-3 fatty acid. Tapioca starch is a pure carbohydrate that does not offer much value beyond carbs for energy. Beware of these added carbs as it may be more than necessary for your dog. It would be better if a higher value ingredient were used instead. As for the rest of the ingredients, there is chicken liver, beef, and a couple of vegetables too for additional protein and nutrients. Overall, this recipe is average.

  • Multiple meat sources
  • Cons

    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    1. Chicken Broth
    2. Chicken
    3. Dried Egg Product
    4. Tapioca Starch
    5. Pea Protein

    Chicken broth adds flavor

    Chicken 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.

    Dried Egg product are eggs that are removed from the shell, then processed and pasteurized at a factory. Its composition does not necessary contain both the yolk and egg white from each egg. The manufacture may blend them at any ratio and may include non-egg products for processing purposes.

    Tapioca or Tapioca starch (also known as tapioca flour) is high in carbohydrates and calories. It is good for energy, but of course too much carbs will go towards storage as fat. Beyond this, it does not offer much nutrients, fiber, or protein. This ingredient is a poor choice for average dog’s diet.

    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.
