Review of Canidae Grain Free Pure Foundations
Limited Ingredient Diet - Puppy Chicken Formula

This product is manufactured by Canidae Pet Food.

According to our data, this Canidae recipe provides complete & balanced nutrition for growing puppies. In other words, this formula is AAFCO approved.

Canidae Grain Free Pure Foundations Limited Ingredient Diet - Puppy Chicken Formula is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for growing puppies.

Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Canidae Grain Free Pure Foundations Limited Ingredient Diet - Puppy Chicken Formula with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is chicken, which is an excellent source of protein and fat.

The second ingredient is chicken broth. Chicken broth provides both flavor and moisture; however, as with other broths, chicken broth does not provide any notable nutritional contribution.

The third ingredient is dried egg. Dried eggs consist of shell-free eggs which are easy to digest and contain high quality protein. Egg protein is often given the highest biological value (BV). The BV metric measures the usability of the ingredient's protein.

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 salmon oil. Salmon oil is an outstanding source of omega-3 fatty acids, an important part of a dog diet.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Canidae Grain Free Pure Foundations Limited Ingredient Diet - Puppy Chicken Formula 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 Canidae recipe.

Next we have agar-agar, which is commonly used as a thickening or gelling agent.

The next ingredient is potassium chloride. Potassium chloride is a potassium supplement.

Then we have salt. Salt is an important mineral for both humans and dogs. Depending on the quantity of salt used (which we cannot determine), salt may or may not be a nutritious addition in the recipe.

Moving on, we have choline chloride. Choline chloride is member of the B-vitamin complex (vitamin B4).

Moving on with this review, we have vitamin E supplement. Vitamin E is an essential vitamin required by dogs.

The remaining ingredients in this Canidae Grain Free Pure Foundations recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives most of its protein from animal based sources. This is an excellent property because meat based protein contains all of the necessary amino acids required by dogs. In our option, this is one of the most important properties to judge when reviewing pet food, therefore we believe this is an exceptional product in this regard.

Final Thoughts

In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.

The official PawDiet rating for Canidae Grain Free Pure Foundations Limited Ingredient Diet - Puppy Chicken Formula is 3.0 out of 5.
