Ingredient Review

Our review of Ziwi Peak Otago Valley Canned Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Beef. Beef is meat from any cattle breed. In pet food, beef can be fresh, freeze-dried, dehydrated, ground, or finely processed into beef meal.

The second ingredient is Beef Broth. Beef broth is the liquid that remains after beef has been cooked. The beef broth in pet food isn’t a major source of nutrients however it does add flavor and aroma to appeal to your companion.

The third ingredient is Venison. Venison is meat from an elk, deer, or antelope. In pet food, venison can be an excellent source of protein, iron, vitamin B12, and many other essential nutrients to support your companion’s well-being. Venison can be a novel protein in diets for pets with sensitivities, too.

The fourth ingredient is Whole Southern Blue Whiting. Whole Southern Blue Whiting is a fish species found in cool sub-Antarctic waters. Whole Southern Blue Whiting is rich in proteins and omega-3 fatty acids which enhance your pet’s skin and coat. Whole Southern Blue Whiting in pet’s diet also improves cognitive functions and kidney health

The fifth 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.

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 Otago Valley Canned 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.
