Ingredient Review

Our review of Ziwi Peak Mackerel & Lamb Recipe Canned 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 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 third 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 fourth ingredient is Lamb Lung. Lamb lung is lung tissue from young sheep that have been slaughtered for consumption. In pet food, lamb lung can be a good source of protein, iron, vitamin C, and other nutrients.

The fifth ingredient is Chickpeas. Chickpeas are legumes. Also known as garbanzo beans, the chickpeas in pet food serve as a source of protein and fiber, as well as some grain-free carbohydrates.

Nutritional Analysis

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.
