Ingredient Review

Our review of PET TAO Blaze Freeze-Dried Raw Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Chicken. Chicken is meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, chicken is used as a primary protein source.

The second 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 third 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 fourth ingredient is Chicken Gizzards. Chicken gizzards are internal organs from a chicken – they perform the job of masticating the chicken’s food after it is swallowed, as chickens have no teeth. While this might not sound appealing to most of us, it is rich in a number of essential nutrients including iron and zinc. Added to pet food, chicken gizzards are also a source of protein and amino acids.

The fifth ingredient is Chicken Livers. Chicken livers are organ meats that come from a chicken. In pet food, chicken livers can serves as a source of protein, iron, and amino acids, along with other nutrients to support your companion’s overall well-being.

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 PET TAO Blaze Freeze-Dried Raw 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.
