Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is Deboned Beef. Organic blueberries are grown without chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. In pet food, organic blueberries serve as a source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to support your companion’s immune system and overall well-being. Organic blueberries also contain fiber and a small amount of easily digestible carbohydrates.

The second 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 third ingredient is Barley. Barley is a cereal grain. In pet food, barley serves as a source of carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.

The fourth ingredient is Oats. Oats are seeds from the oat plant, usually with their tough outer hulls removed before further processing into a coarse high-fiber substance. The oats in pet food are a source of carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals to support your companion’s overall well-being.

The fifth ingredient is Beef Meal. Beef meal is cooked, dried, finely ground meat from any cattle breed. In pet food, beef meal can serve as a protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids.

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 Perfectus Rich Red Meat & Ancient Grain Recipe Dry Dog Food.

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.
