Ingredient Review

Our review of Sport Dog Food Active Series Bird Dog Whitefish Formula Flax-Free Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is White Fish Meal. White fish 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, white fish meal is a source of protein and essential nutrients including Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids.

The second ingredient is Whole Ground Sorghum. Whole 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, whole ground sorghum can serve as a source of dietary fiber, antioxidants, iron, zinc, and vitamins B1 and B2.

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

The fourth ingredient is Whole Ground Millet. Whole ground millet is a milled gluten-free cereal grain that finds its way into a variety of baked products. In pet food, whole ground millet can be a source of carbohydrates, amino acids, fiber, B vitamins, and other nutrients.

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.

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 Sport Dog Food Active Series Bird Dog Whitefish Formula Flax-Free Dry Dog Food.
