Our review of Holistic Select Small & Mini Breed Puppy Health Anchovy begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Anchovy. Anchovy is a general term for small marine fishes called anchovies, and generally refers to the entire fish rather than meat alone. When added to pet food, anchovy can be a good source of protein, amino acids, and essential fatty acids to benefit your companion’s overall wellbeing.
The second ingredient is Sardine Meal. Sardine meal is a cooked, dried, finely milled product that is made with sardines, which are small, oily fish that are used for human consumption worldwide. In pet food, sardine meal serves as a source of protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and Omega-3 essential fatty acid.
The third ingredient is Chicken Meal. In pet food, chicken meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken meat and skin. As a dry form of animal protein, it is most often found in kibble and treats.
The fourth ingredient is Chickpeas. Chickpeas are legumes. Also known as garbanzo beans, the chickpeas in pet food serve as a source of protein and fiber, as well as some grain-free carbohydrates.
The fifth ingredient is Peas. Pea is a general term to describe whole, split, or milled peas, which are a grain-free, gluten-free source of protein, fiber, and carbohydrates. In pet food, pea products serve as an energy source as well as a supplementary source of vitamins and minerals.

Holistic Select Small & Mini Breed Puppy Health Anchovy is priced above the average market price for dry puppy food.
A puppy needs plenty of calories to support their growth and development. In general, puppy foods are much higher in calories to help support all of the extra energy that goes into growth. Depending on your pup’s breed, they may need to continue eating puppy food for between 6 and 24 months. Small breeds tend to mature more quickly than large breeds. Make sure to ask your veterinarian how long your puppy should remain on a puppy formula.
