Ingredient Review

Our review of Addiction Perfect Summer Brushtail Grain-Free Raw Dehydrated Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Brushtail. Brushtail is meat from a brushtail possum. In pet food, brushtail can be a good source of protein, amino acids, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and many other nutrients. Since brushtail is a novel protein, it can be found in foods meant for pets with allergies.

The second ingredient is Potatoes. 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 third ingredient is Papayas. Papayas are tropical fruits with edible, bright-orange flesh and large black seeds. While we humans might enjoy them in fruit salad, the papayas in pet food are often used as a source of digestive enzymes that help your companion’s body break down protein more efficiently.

The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is Sunflower Seeds. Sunflower seeds are the seeds from any edible sunflower species. In pet food, sunflower seeds can be a source of protein, fiber, and fat, along with fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Addiction Perfect Summer Brushtail Grain-Free Raw Dehydrated Dog Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat 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.
