Ingredient Review

The first 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 third ingredient is Meat By Products. The meat by products in pet food may be organs such as liver, kidneys, lungs, heart, and more, as well as meat left over from butchering. While meat by products include offal that isn’t meant for human consumption, it may not contain hooves, horns, teeth, or animal hides.

The fourth ingredient is Wheat Gluten. Wheat gluten is a good source of digestible protein. In pet food, wheat gluten is used as a binding agent and texturizer as well as a protein source.
