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.

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 Recipe Canned Dog Food.
