Ingredient Review

Our review of Farmina N&D Ancestral Grain Lamb & Blueberry Medium & Maxi Adult Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Lamb. Lamb is meat from a young sheep. In pet food, lamb may be a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, amino acids, and minerals.

The second ingredient is Dehydrated Lamb. Dehydrated lamb is dried meat from a young sheep. In pet food, dehydrated lamb may be a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, amino acids, and minerals.

The third ingredient is Whole Spelt. Whole spelt is an ancient grain that is closely related to wheat. It is not a gluten-free grain. When added to pet food, whole spelt can be a source of carbohydrates, fiber, protein, and fat, along with many essential vitamins and minerals.

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

The fifth ingredient is Dried Whole Eggs. Dried whole eggs are a combination of dried egg white and egg yolk. The dried whole eggs in pet food are a good source of healthy, easily digested protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals.

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.
