The first 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 second ingredient is Beef. Beef is meat from any cattle breed. In pet food, beef can be fresh, freeze-dried, dehydrated, ground, or finely processed into beef meal.

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.

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.
