Ingredient Review

Our review of Blackwood Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Recipe Sensitive Skin & Stomach Formula 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 Millet. Millet is a gluten-free cereal grain that finds its way into a variety of products ranging from baked goods to birdseed. In pet food, millet can be a source of carbohydrates, amino acids, fiber, B vitamins, and other nutrients.

The fourth ingredient is Ground Grain Sorghum. Ground grain sorghum is made with gluten-free grain from the sorghum plant. It has been processed into smaller particles for better absorption and a smoother texture. In pet food, ground grain sorghum can serve as a source of dietary fiber, antioxidants, iron, zinc, and vitamins B1 and B2.

The fifth ingredient is Catfish Meal. Catfish fish meal is dried, ground tissue from any species of catfish. In pet food, catfish meal serves as a source of protein, amino acids, and essential fatty acids to help keep your companion’s skin and coat healthy.

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 Blackwood Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Recipe Sensitive Skin & Stomach Formula Dry Dog Food.

Your adult dog needs a balance of macro and micronutrients to thrive. A food formulated for adult maintenance or all life stages is made to meet these needs. While there can be a lot of variation in actual calorie density, adult dog foods are generally intended to provide for basic calorie needs of the average active dog. In addition to satisfying their energy needs, these foods provide the protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and other nutrients your adult dog needs to survive. Again, not all adult foods are the same, so you may have to search around for the right fit for your dog.
