Ingredient Review

Our review of Canisource Grand Cru Red Meat Dehydrated Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Pork. Pork is a general term for meat from a domestic pig. In pet food, pork can be an important source of protein, along with other essential nutrients.

The second ingredient is Beef. Beef is meat from any cattle breed. In pet food, beef can be fresh, freeze-dried, dehydrated, ground, or finely processed into beef meal.

The third ingredient is White Rice. White rice is a gluten-free cereal grain that has been processed to remove the high-fiber layer that gives rice its natural brown color. In pet food, white rice is a source of easily digestible carbohydrates.

The fourth ingredient is Whole Barley. Whole barley is a cereal grain that finds its way into many foods meant for human consumption. In pet food, whole barley serves as a source of carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals, as well as a source of fiber to support good digestion.

The fifth ingredient is Rolled Oats. Rolled oats have had their tough outer hulls removed before further processing into a coarse high-fiber substance. The rolled oats in pet food are a source of carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals to support your companion’s overall well-being.

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 Canisource Grand Cru Red Meat Dehydrated 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.
