Our review of Dave's Pet Food Grain-Free Ocean Fish & Vegetable Cuts in Gravy Canned Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Fish Broth. Fish broth is a byproduct of the seafood cooking process, and can contain fish of any kind. In pet food, fish broth adds flavor and aroma, along with some nutrients.

The second ingredient is Chicken. Chicken is meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, chicken is used as a primary protein source.

The third ingredient is Chicken Broth. Chicken broth is made by boiling chicken meat, skin, and bones to obtain nutrients including fat, vitamins, and minerals. In pet food, chicken broth increases moisture and improves flavor.

The fourth ingredient is Ocean Fish. Ocean fish is a general term for the meat from saltwater fish. In pet food, ocean fish can serve as a source of dietary protein and many other nutrients including Omega-3 fatty 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.
