The first 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 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 Water Sufficient. In pet food, the term water sufficient typically refers to the amount of water that is needed to process the rest of the ingredients.

The fourth 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.
