The first ingredient is Deboned Duck. Deboned duck is meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl, with all bones removed.

It is sometimes used as a novel protein, and is often an ingredient in diets formulated specifically for pets with allergies.
The second ingredient is Duck Meal. Duck meal is cooked, dried, finely ground meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl. In pet food, duck meal can serve as a protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids.

The third ingredient is Peas. Pea is a general term to describe whole, split, or milled peas, which are a grain-free, gluten-free source of protein, fiber, and carbohydrates. In pet food, pea products serve as an energy source as well as a supplementary source of vitamins and minerals.
