Ingredient Review

Our review of Ziwi Peak Hauraki Plains 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 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 third ingredient is Duck. Duck is meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl. In pet food, duck can serve as a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids. It is sometimes used as a novel protein, and is often an ingredient in diets formulated specifically for pets with allergies.

The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is Turkey. Turkey is an easily digested meat that’s relatively low in fat. In pet food, turkey might be the primary protein source or it may be part of a blend made with different proteins.

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 Hauraki Plains Grain-Free Air-Dried Dog Food.
