Ingredient Review

Our review of AvoDerm Natural Grain-Free Salmon Recipe in Gravy Cat Food Pouches begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Water Sufficient. In pet food, the term water sufficient typically refers to the amount of water that is needed to process the rest of the ingredients.

The second ingredient is Salmon. Salmon is meat from any fish in the salmon family, and in pet food, salmon might also refer to other parts of the fish including skin and organs. Salmon is an excellent source of protein, and it is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids.

The third ingredient is Chicken. Chicken is meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, chicken is used as a primary protein source.

The fourth ingredient is Sardine. Sardines are small, oily fish that are used for human consumption worldwide. In pet food, sardine serves as a source of protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and Omega-3 essential fatty acid.

The fifth ingredient is Pea Pulse Protein. Pea pulse protein is a good source of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. While the pea pulse protein in pet food isn’t normally a primary protein source, it is easy to digest and it’s also a good source of fiber.
