    Ingredient Review

    Our review of Weruva Marbella Paella with Mackerel & Pumpkin in Aspic Grain-Free Canned Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

    The first ingredient is Mackerel Flakes. Mackerel flakes are processed meat from a fish belonging to any mackerel species, finely flaked rather than presented in larger chunks. In pet food, mackerel flakes can serve as a source of protein, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and other important nutrients.

    The second ingredient is Water Sufficient. In pet food, the term water sufficient typically refers to the amount of water that is needed to process the rest of the ingredients.

    The third 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 fourth ingredient is Sunflower Seed Oil. Sunflower seed oil is a type of culinary oil that is pressed from ripe sunflower seeds. In pet food, sunflower seed oil can be a good source of healthy fat, vitamin E, and Omega-6 essential fatty acids.

    The fifth ingredient is Locust Bean. Also known as carob bean, locust bean is the seed of the locust tree. In pet food, locust bean can be used as a thickening or gelling agent that improves texture and appearance, and in its ground form, it can be used to harmlessly mimic the flavor and aroma of chocolate.

    When we analyzed the ingredients in Weruva Marbella Paella with Mackerel & Pumpkin in Aspic Grain-Free Canned Dog Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from plant 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.
