Our review of Dr. Tim's Heirloom Ancient Grains Fish Formula Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Pollock. Pollock is a general name for two species of white-fleshed marine fish of the Pollachius genus. In pet food, pollock can be a good source of protein, amino acids, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and many essential vitamins and minerals.
The second ingredient is Salmon Meal. Salmon meal is ground flesh from any fish in the salmon family, and in pet food, salmon meal might also include other parts of the fish including skin and organs. Salmon meal can be a good source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids.
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 Quinoa. Quinoa is an edible seed that can be eaten in place of a grain. In pet food, quinoa can serve as a source of plant-based protein, fiber, and carbohydrates. It also contains vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
The fifth ingredient is Spelt. Spelt is an ancient grain that is closely related to wheat. It is not a gluten-free grain. When added to pet food, spelt can be a source of carbohydrates, fiber, protein, and fat, along with many essential vitamins and minerals.
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 Dr. Tim's Heirloom Ancient Grains Fish Formula Dry Dog Food.
