Ingredient Review

Our review of Only Natural Pet Wholesome Homemade Fish & Fowl Recipe Grain-Free Dehydrated Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Deboned Duck. Deboned duck is meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl, with all bones removed. In pet food, deboned duck can serve as a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids. It is sometimes used as a novel protein, and is often an ingredient in diets formulated specifically for pets with allergies.

The second ingredient is Duck Meal. Duck meal is cooked, dried, finely ground meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl. In pet food, duck meal can serve as a protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids. It is sometimes used as a novel protein and is often an ingredient in diets formulated specifically for pets with allergies.

The third ingredient is Whitefish Meal. Whitefish meal is a general term for cooked, dried, finely ground meat from whitefish, which are freshwater and saltwater fish species with light-colored flesh. In pet food, whitefish meal is a source of protein and essential nutrients including Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids.

The fourth ingredient is Sweet Potato. The sweet potato is a root vegetable that offers vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. In pet food, sweet potato is sometimes used as a source of grain-free carbohydrate.

The fifth ingredient is Garbanzo Beans. Garbanzo beans are legumes. Also known as chickpeas, the garbanzo beans in pet food serve as a source of protein and fiber, as well as some grain-free carbohydrates.

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 Only Natural Pet Wholesome Homemade Fish & Fowl Recipe Grain-Free Dehydrated Dog Food.
