Ingredient Review

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

The first 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 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 Venison Tripe. Venison tripe is the inner lining of the stomach of an elk, deer, or antelope. In pet food, venison tripe can serve as a source of protein, vitamins, and minerals including vitamin B12, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium.

The fourth ingredient is Venison Liver. Venison liver is organ meat from an elk, deer, or antelope. In pet food, venison liver can be an excellent source of protein, iron, vitamin B12, and many other essential nutrients including the important minerals zinc, copper, iron, and selenium. Venison liver can be a source of novel protein for pets with allergies.

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 Venison Recipe 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.
