Ingredient Review

Our review of ALPO Prime Cuts with Chicken & Wholesome Veggie Accents in Gravy Canned Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

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 second 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.

The third ingredient is Turkey. Turkey is an easily digested meat that’s relatively low in fat. In pet food, turkey might be the primary protein source or it may be part of a blend made with different proteins.

The fourth ingredient is Liver. Liver is a general name for a protein-rich organ meat from any animal. The liver in pet food can be a source of important minerals including zinc, copper, iron, and selenium, but depending on its source, can be of low quality.

The fifth 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.

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 ALPO Prime Cuts with Chicken & Wholesome Veggie Accents in Gravy Canned Dog Food.
