The second ingredient is Tuna. Tuna is a general name for one of several saltwater fish species. In pet food, tuna is generally used as a protein source.

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.
