Ingredient Review

Our review of Perfectus Plentiful Poultry & Ancient Grain Recipe Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Deboned Chicken. Deboned chicken is chicken meat with the bones removed. In pet food, deboned chicken is a valuable source of protein.

The second 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 third ingredient is Sorghum. Sorghum is a gluten-free grain from the sorghum plant. In pet food, sorghum can serve as a source of dietary fiber, antioxidants, iron, zinc, and vitamins B1 and B2.

The fourth ingredient is Ground Sorghum. Ground sorghum is made with gluten-free grain from the sorghum plant. It has been processed into smaller particles for better absorption and a smoother texture. In pet food, ground sorghum can serve as a source of dietary fiber, antioxidants, iron, zinc, and vitamins B1 and B2.

The fifth ingredient is Chicken Fat. Chicken fat is a good source of omega-6 fatty acids including linoleic acid. In pet food, chicken fat also adds flavor, improves consistency, and serves as a source of the animal fat pets need for overall 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.
