Ingredient Review

Our review of Blue Seal EnTrust Adult 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 Ground Barley. Ground barley is a cereal grain that has been milled into smaller fragments for better digestibility. In pet food, ground barley serves as a source of carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.

The fourth ingredient is Ground Oats. Ground oats have had their tough outer hulls removed before further processing into a coarse high-fiber substance, sometimes complete with nutritious bran. The ground oats in pet food are a source of carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals to support your companion’s overall well-being.

The fifth ingredient is Corn Gluten Meal. Corn gluten meal is produced as a byproduct from the manufacture of corn syrup and other sweeteners made with corn. It contains no wheat gluten. The corn gluten meal in pet food is a source of inexpensive protein, but it has high levels of cysteine, which have been linked to the formation of urinary stones.

Nutritional Analysis

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.
