Our review of Veterinary Select Joint Care Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Whole Grain Corn. Whole grain corn is the entire corn seed, usually ground for easier consumption. In pet food, whole grain corn acts as a source of inexpensive protein, fiber, and some nutrients.
The second ingredient is Chicken By-Product Meal source Of Glucosamine. When you see “chicken by-product meal source of glucosamine” in pet products, it means that the dried, ground chicken contains cartilage and soluble proteins that contribute joint-supporting glucosamine to your companion’s meals.
The third ingredient is Chondroitin Sulfate. Chondroitin sulfate is a natural anti-inflammatory agent that is often combined with glucosamine. The chondroitin sulfate in pet food, treats, and supplements is often intended to support healthy joint function, particularly in aging companion animals.
The fourth ingredient is Flaxseed. Flaxseed comes from the flax plant, which is cultivated for both food and fiber. In pet food, flaxseed serves as a source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids, which provide a number of benefits and contribute to healthy skin and a shiny coat.
The fifth ingredient is Peas. Pea is a general term to describe whole, split, or milled peas, which are a grain-free, gluten-free source of protein, fiber, and carbohydrates. In pet food, pea products serve as an energy source as well as a supplementary source of vitamins and minerals.
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 Veterinary Select Joint Care Dry Dog Food.
