Ingredient Review

Our review of Hound & Gatos 98% Salmon begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first 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 second ingredient is Fish Broth. Fish broth is a byproduct of the seafood cooking process, and can contain fish of any kind. In pet food, fish broth adds flavor and aroma, along with some nutrients.

The third ingredient is Mackerel. Mackerel is meat from a fish belonging to any mackerel species. In pet food, mackerel serves as a source of protein, essential fatty acids, and other important nutrients.

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 Agar-Agar. Agar-agar is a flavorless gelling agent made from algae. In pet food, agar-agar is used to improve texture or as a replacement for gelatin.

After the fifth ingredient, the list includes all remaining ingredients. It’s worth noting that ingredients (other than nutritional supplements) located this far down on the list aren’t likely to have an impact on the overall rating of this Hound & Gatos 98% Salmon.
