The first 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 second ingredient is Coconut Glycerin. Coconut glycerin is a binder and sweeting agent that is sourced from coconuts. The coconut glycerin in pet food is sometimes used to add a chewy texture or to bind other ingredients together.
