Ingredient Review

Our review of Canisource Grand Cru Turkey Grain-Free Dehydrated Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Turkey. Turkey is an easily digested meat that’s relatively low in fat. In pet food, turkey might be the primary protein source or it may be part of a blend made with different proteins.

The second ingredient is Turkey Liver. Turkey liver is a general term that can refer to fresh, frozen, cooked, or freeze dried liver from a turkey of any breed. The turkey liver in pet food is more than just a source of protein – it’s also a good source of vitamin A, copper, niacin, zinc, and other essential nutrients.

The third ingredient is Green Peas. Green peas are legumes, usually with the pod or shell removed. The green peas in pet food can be a good source of plant-based protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

The fourth ingredient is Green Lentils. Green lentils are legumes. In pet food, green lentils are a source of protein, fiber, and nutrients including a number of essential vitamins and minerals.

The fifth ingredient is Lupine. Lupine is a flour made with lupine seeds, which are also known as lupin seeds. In pet food, lupine can be a good source of protein, beta-carotene, vitamin E, and amino acids.

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.
