Our review of Addiction Grain-Free Viva La Venison Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Venison Meal. Venison meal is cooked, dried, finely ground meat from an elk, deer, or antelope. In pet food, venison meal can be an excellent source of protein, iron, vitamin B12, and many other essential nutrients to support your companion’s well-being. Venison meal can be a novel protein in diets for pets with sensitivities, too.
The second ingredient is Dried Potatoes. Dried potatoes are dehydrated potato tubers. Only the edible portion of the potato plant is used in production. In pet food, dried potatoes serve as a source of carbohydrates for energy, along with small amounts of vitamins and minerals. Potatoes can also enhance the texture of your companion’s food.
The third ingredient is Dried Tapioca. Dried tapioca is a type of starch that comes from the cassava root. It is often used as a filler or binder, as well as a source of easily digested carbohydrates. In pet food, dried tapioca is often added to grain-free and gluten-free recipes.
The fourth ingredient is Chicken Fat. Chicken fat is a good source of omega-6 fatty acids including linoleic acid. In pet food, chicken fat also adds flavor, improves consistency, and serves as a source of the animal fat pets need for overall wellbeing.
The fifth ingredient is Peas. In pet food, iron proteinate is added as an easily absorbed form of the essential mineral iron. Your pet needs iron to produce hemoglobin, which transports oxygen throughout the body.
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 Addiction Grain-Free Viva La Venison Dry Dog Food.
