Ingredient Review

The first ingredient is dried potato. Dried potatoes are commonly used in pet food as a gluten-free carbohydrate source. In addition to carbohydrates, dried potatoes also supply protein and various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

The second ingredient is duck meal. Duck meal is produced by cooking duck using a process called rendering. The rendering process dramatically reduces the natural moisture of duck and thereby results in a highly condensed protein source.

The third ingredient is ground brown rice. Ground brown rice is naturally rich in fiber and various minerals including manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium. Relative to other grains, ground brown rice is easy to digest.

The fourth ingredient is oatmeal. Oatmeal is simply coarsely ground oats and therefore contains the entire oat grain. As with regular oats, oatmeal is rich in dietary fiber, B vitamins, and various minerals.

The fifth ingredient is rice flour. Rice flour is a gluten-free carbohydrate source. As long as the bran and germ of the grain are included in the flour, rice flour can provide a notable amount of fiber and nutrition. However, because the type of rice ("brown" or "white") is not specified, we cannot make this determination.

Next we have rye flour. Rye flour is a nutritious carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber and various minerals.

The next ingredient is oat flour. Oat flour is a nutritious carbohydrate source, naturally rich in dietary fiber, B-vitamins, and several essential minerals.

Then we have ground white rice. Ground white rice is another name for white rice flour, which is a gluten free carbohydrate source.

Moving on, we have ground flaxseed. Ground flaxseeds are an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids and dietary fiber. They also provide a notable amount of protein, B vitamins, and various minerals.

Controversial Ingredients

Avocado meal is a controversial ingredient in dog food, mainly because of potential toxicity concerns. We believe these concerns are largely due to misinformation.

Avocados are nutritionally dense with a notable amount of vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, and healthy fats. In addition, avocados are believed to be beneficial to the skin and coat of dogs.
