Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is Mackerel. Mackerel is meat from a fish belonging to any mackerel species. In pet food, mackerel serves as a source of protein, essential fatty acids, and other important nutrients.

The second ingredient is Lamb. Lamb is meat from a young sheep. In pet food, lamb may be a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, amino acids, and minerals.

The third ingredient is Lamb Heart. Lamb heart is muscle tissue from the heart of a young sheep that has been slaughtered for consumption. In pet food, lamb heart serves as an excellent source of protein, iron, zinc, B vitamins, and many trace minerals to support your companion’s overall well-being.

The fourth ingredient is Lamb Tripe. Lamb tripe is lining from a young sheep’s stomach. In pet food, lamb tripe can serve as a source of protein, vitamins, and minerals including vitamin B12, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium.

The fifth ingredient is Lamb Liver. Lamb liver is liver from a young sheep. In pet food, lamb liver can be an excellent source of protein and iron, along with amino acids and many other essential nutrients that benefit your companion’s wellbeing.

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 Mackerel & Lamb 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.
