Our review of Dr. Tim's Ultra Athletic Fusion Formula Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Folic Acid. Folate, also known as vitamin B9 and folacin, is one of the B vitamins. Manufactured folic acid, which is converted into folate by the body, is used as a dietary supplement and in food fortification as it is more stable during processing and storage.
The second ingredient is Vitamin D3. Cholecalciferol, also known as vitamin D3 and colecalciferol, is a type of vitamin D which is made by the skin when exposed to sunlight; it is also found in some foods and can be taken as a dietary supplement. It is used to treat and prevent vitamin D deficiency and associated diseases, including rickets.
The third ingredient is Vitamin B12. Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body: it is a cofactor in DNA synthesis, and in both fatty acid and amino acid metabolism. It is particularly important in the normal functioning of the nervous system via its role in the synthesis of myelin, and in the maturation of developing red blood cells in the bone marrow.
The fourth ingredient is Niacin. Niacin is a B vitamin that is also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinic acid. Niacin is a natural compound that can be derived from legumes and animal products including organ meat, eggs, and more. Added niacin helps your pet metabolize basic nutrients including protein, fat, and carbohydrates.
The fifth ingredient is Choline Chloride. Choline chloride is an essential supplement in pet food. As an added source of naturally occurring choline, a B vitamin that is present in meat, fish, eggs, legumes, and many other foods, choline chloride supports metabolism, liver function, and nerve function.
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 Ultra Athletic Fusion Formula Dry Dog Food.
