Ingredient Review

Our review of Royal Canin Yorkshire Terrier Adult Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Brewers Rice. Brewers rice is a byproduct of the beer industry. The brewers rice in pet food has been dried and ground for use as a carbohydrate source, often in gluten-free recipes.

The second ingredient is Brown Rice. Brown rice is a name for whole-grain rice with its outer hull removed. The brown rice in pet food can be a source of carbohydrates and fiber. Brown rice also contains omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals

The third ingredient is Chicken By-Product Meal. In pet food, chicken by-product meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken by-product meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken parts that might not be used for human consumption including necks, feet, entrails, and undeveloped eggs.

The fourth 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.

The fifth ingredient is Wheat Gluten. Wheat gluten is a good source of digestible protein. In pet food, wheat gluten is used as a binding agent and texturizer as well as a protein source.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Royal Canin Yorkshire Terrier Adult Dry Dog Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.
