Our review of Only Natural Pet RawNibs Chicken & Liver Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Ground Chicken With Bone. Ground chicken with bone is milled chicken meat with the bones ground in. This isn’t something we humans would find appealing but in pet food, ground chicken with bone can be a valuable source of protein, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals to support your furry friend’s overall well-being.

The second ingredient is Chicken Heart. Chicken heart is meat from the muscles that form a chicken’s heart. In pet food, chicken heart can be a good source of protein, iron, and other important nutrients.

The third ingredient is Chicken Liver. Chicken liver is one of a few organ meats that come from a chicken. In pet food, chicken liver serves as a source of protein, iron, and amino acids.

The fourth ingredient is Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes are added to pet food as an easy-to-digest source of grain-free and gluten-free carbohydrates. They contain high levels of fiber, along with a number of important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

The fifth ingredient is Broccoli. Broccoli is a vegetable that’s in the same family as cabbage. In pet food, broccoli serves as a source of fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to benefit your companion’s wellbeing.

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.

With that in mind, we’ve compared Only Natural Pet RawNibs Chicken & Liver Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Food to the other 202 fresh frozen dog food recipes in our database:
