Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is Mutton. Mutton is domesticated sheep red meat. Mutton is rich in Iron, phosphorous, copper vitamins B6 and B6. Having Mutton in pet food helps boost your companion’s immune and nervous system. Mutton is great for pets with food allergies, and it’s also packed with anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.

The second ingredient is Goat. Goat is meat from any breed of domesticated goat. In pet food, goat meat can be a fairly low-calorie source of protein, amino acids, iron, B vitamins, and many other essential nutrients. As a novel protein, goat meat sometimes makes its way into foods designed to support pets with allergies.

The third ingredient is Whole Kahawai. Kahawai is a marine fish species found in coastal regions of Australia and New Zealand. Whole Kahawai is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which strengthen your pet’s immune system and nourishes your pet’s skin making the coat shinier

The fourth ingredient is Goat Tripe. Goat Tripe is the stomach lining of a goat. Goat Tripe is rich in Zinc, iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, protein vitamin B12 and B3. Having Goat Tripe in pet food improves a healthy digestive system, coat and skin conditions and improves your dog gut’s health.

The fifth ingredient is Whole White Trevally. Whole White Trevally is packed with proteins, vitamins D, and B12. Including Whole White Trevally in pet diet helps in the formation of healthy bones, muscles and a healthy skin and coat.

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 East Cape Grain-Free Air-Dried Dog Food.
