Ingredient Review

Our review of SquarePet Squarely Natural Turkey Meal & Brown Rice Formula Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Turkey Meal. The turkey meal in pet food is typically a byproduct of turkey meat production. Turkey meal is high in protein, and is easy for pets to digest. It is a good source of B vitamins and amino acids to support your pet’s overall well-being.

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 White Rice. White rice is a gluten-free cereal grain that has been processed to remove the high-fiber layer that gives rice its natural brown color. In pet food, white rice is a source of easily digestible carbohydrates.

The fourth ingredient is Turkey. Turkey is an easily digested meat that’s relatively low in fat. In pet food, turkey might be the primary protein source or it may be part of a blend made with different proteins.

The fifth ingredient is Cold Pressed Sunflower Oil.

When we analyzed the ingredients in SquarePet Squarely Natural Turkey Meal & Brown Rice Formula Dry Dog Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.

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.
