The first ingredient is Water. Water is added to pet food as a blending agent, or as a thinning agent. It is typically found in wet or moist foods rather than in dry kibble.

The second ingredient is Lamb. Lamb is meat from a young sheep. In pet food, lamb may be a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, amino acids, and minerals.

The third ingredient is Mackerel. Mackerel is meat from a fish belonging to any mackerel species. In pet food, mackerel serves as a source of protein, essential fatty acids, and other important nutrients.

The fourth ingredient is Pumpkin. Pumpkin is a type of winter squash. High in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, it is also a good source of fiber. In pet food, pumpkin promotes healthy digestion while enhancing flavor and providing added nutrition.

The fifth ingredient is Lamb Lung. Lamb lung is lung tissue from young sheep that have been slaughtered for consumption. In pet food, lamb lung can be a good source of protein, iron, vitamin C, and other nutrients.

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.
