We'll begin this review of Addiction Raw Dehydrated Dog Food Perfect Summer Brushtail with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is brushtail. Brushtail is an excellent novel protein source. However, raw brushtail contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of brushtail is dramatically reduced. Therefore, it's important to ensure that other meat sources are included within the first few ingredients to ensure the product derives most of its protein from meat.
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 canola oil. Canola oil is extracted from canola plant seeds. Many people believe that canola oil is basically an improved rapeseed oil.
Canola oil is controversial because rapeseed oil is actually dangerous for human/animal consumption.
The fourth ingredient is carrot, which provide a healthy dose of vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.
The fifth ingredient is papaya. Papaya is a healthy exotic fruit. It's an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Addiction Raw Dehydrated Dog Food Perfect Summer Brushtail 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 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 next ingredient is sunflower seed, which are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats.
Then we have spinach. Spinach is an edible flowering plant which supplies a notable amount of dietary fiber and plant based protein. It's also naturally rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, and folate.
The remaining ingredients in this Addiction Raw Dehydrated 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 Raw Dehydrated Dog Food Perfect Summer Brushtail is 3.0 out of 5.
