Ingredient Review

Our review of American Natural Premium Lamb Meal & Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Lamb Meal. Lamb meal is the rendered, ground, and dried meat from a young sheep. In pet food, lamb meal can be an important source of protein fat, vitamins, and minerals.

The second ingredient is Brown Rice. Brown rice is a name for whole-grain rice with its outer hull removed. The brown rice in pet food can be a source of carbohydrates and fiber. Brown rice also contains omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.

The third ingredient is Barley. Barley is a cereal grain. In pet food, barley serves as a source of carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.

The fourth ingredient is Peas. In pet food, iron proteinate is added as an easily absorbed form of the essential mineral iron. Your pet needs iron to produce hemoglobin, which transports oxygen throughout the body.
