Review of Addiction Dry Dog Food
Wild Kangaroo & Apples
This product is manufactured by Addiction Foods LLC.
According to our data, this Addiction recipe provides complete & balanced nutrition for all life stages. In other words, this formula is AAFCO approved.
Addiction Dry Dog Food Wild Kangaroo & Apples is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.
We'll begin this review of Addiction Dry Dog Food Wild Kangaroo & Apples with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is dried kangaroo. Dried kangaroo is an excellent novel protein source, naturally rich in all of the essential amino acids required by dogs.
The second ingredient is potato. Potatoes are commonly used in pet food as a gluten free carbohydrate source which also provides various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
The third ingredient is tapioca. Tapioca is a gluten-free starch extracted from cassava roots. Starch is a necessary component in producing kibble and tapioca is an excellent choice in this regard.
The fourth ingredient is pea. Peas are starchy members of the legume family. Other than carbohydrates, peas are notably high in plant based protein and various vitamins and minerals.
The fifth ingredient is chicken fat. Chicken fat is typically collected while cooking chicken using a process called rendering. Chicken fat is a relatively high quality source of essential fatty acids. In particular, chicken fat is high in linoleic acid, an important omega-6 fatty acid.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Addiction Dry Dog Food Wild Kangaroo & Apples are not as important as the first five ingredients.
However, collectively they still have a significant impact on the overall quality of the product. Therefore, we'll continue discussing the remaining ingredients in this Addiction recipe.
Next we have apple. Apples are high in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
The next ingredient is blueberry. Blueberries are an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese.
Then we have cranberry. Cranberries are rich in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins such as vitamin C and minerals such as manganese.
Moving on, we have papaya. Papaya is a healthy exotic fruit. It's an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
The remaining ingredients in this Addiction Dry Dog Food recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.
Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives a substantial amount of protein from non-meat ingredients. This is an undesirable property because plant based protein often lacks many of the necessary amino acids required by dogs. This property is typically found in lower quality products.
In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
The official PawDiet rating for Addiction Dry Dog Food Wild Kangaroo & Apples is 3.0 out of 5.
