Ingredient Review

Our review of Addiction Nutri-RX Allergy-HS Ultra-Hypoallergenic Grain-Free Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Potato. Potatoes are versatile starchy root vegetables that provide carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and some fiber. In pet food, potatoes can add texture and flavor while replacing other starches. Many grain-free and gluten-free pet foods contain potatoes.

The second ingredient is Hydrolyzed Soy Protein Isolate. Hydrolyzed soy protein isolate is protein sourced from soybeans, with its amino acids isolated and pre-digested. When added to pet food, hydrolyzed soy protein isolate can make it easier for your companion to digest and absorb the protein and amino acids.

The third ingredient is Canola Oil. Canola oil – also known as rapeseed oil – is a oil pressed from rapeseeds. In pet food, canola oil serves as an inexpensive source of fat, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, and vitamins E and K.

The fourth ingredient is Dicalcium Phosphate. In pet food, dicalcium phosphate serves as a supplemental source of calcium and phosphate, two minerals that are essential for your pet’s well-being.

The fifth ingredient is Sodium Chloride. Sodium chloride is an ionic compound we usually refer to as salt or table salt. In pet food, sodium chloride may be used as a flavor enhancer; it also has a natural preservative effect.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Addiction Nutri-RX Allergy-HS Ultra-Hypoallergenic Grain-Free Dry Dog Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from plant based sources.

Nutritional Analysis

Your adult dog needs a balance of macro and micronutrients to thrive. A food formulated for adult maintenance or all life stages is made to meet these needs. While there can be a lot of variation in actual calorie density, adult dog foods are generally intended to provide for basic calorie needs of the average active dog. In addition to satisfying their energy needs, these foods provide the protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and other nutrients your adult dog needs to survive. Again, not all adult foods are the same, so you may have to search around for the right fit for your dog.
