Ingredient Review

Our review of Under the Weather Rice & Chicken Flavor Freeze-Dried Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first 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 second ingredient is Freeze Dried Chicken Breast. In pet food, the term freeze dried chicken breast often refers to raw chicken breast that has been freeze-dried to preserve nutrients and allow for easy packaging and storage. Freeze dried chicken breast serves as a high-quality, low-fat source of protein, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.

The third ingredient is Glycine. Glycine is an amino acid that the body uses to form proteins. It’s naturally found in protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, and dairy products. In pet food, glycine typically acts as a flavor enhancer.

The fourth ingredient is Sodium Chloride. Sodium chloride is an ionic compound we usually refer to as salt or table salt. In pet food, sodium chloride may be used as a flavor enhancer; it also has a natural preservative effect.

The fifth ingredient is Potassium Chloride. Potassium chloride is a form of potassium, which helps your pet’s entire body function properly. In pet food, potassium chloride supports healthy blood pressure, neural function, metabolism, muscle function, organ function, bone health, and more.

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 Under the Weather Rice & Chicken Flavor Freeze-Dried 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.
