Ingredient Review

Our review of Ziwi Peak Chicken Grain-Free Air-Dried Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Chicken. Chicken is meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, chicken is used as a primary protein source.

The second ingredient is Chicken Liver. Chicken liver is one of a few organ meats that come from a chicken. In pet food, chicken liver serves as a source of protein, iron, and amino acids.

The third ingredient is Chicken Heart. Chicken heart is meat from the muscles that form a chicken’s heart. In pet food, chicken heart can be a good source of protein, iron, and other important nutrients.

The fourth ingredient is New Zealand Green Mussel. Also known as New Zealand green-lipped mussel, or GLM, New Zealand green mussel is a shellfish with high Omega-3 fatty acid content. In pet food, New Zealand green mussel may promote musculoskeletal health while providing some anti-inflammatory benefits.

The fifth ingredient is Chicken Bone. Chicken bone is dried, ground bones from chickens that have been slaughtered for consumption. This ingredient doesn’t sound appealing to us but in pet food, chicken bone can be a source of calcium and phosphorus, two essential nutrients that can keep your pet’s joints, bones, and teeth healthy.

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 Ziwi Peak Chicken Grain-Free Air-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.
