Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Hill's Prescription Diet Urinary Care c/d Multicare Chicken and Vegetable Stew with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

The first ingredient is water. Water of course only provides moisture, a necessary component of wet dog foods.

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

The third ingredient is pork liver. Pork liver is an excellent organ meat which provides high quality protein and fat. In addition, pork liver provides many essential vitamins and minerals.

The fourth ingredient is carrot, which are naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant.

The fifth ingredient is rice. Rice is a gluten-free carbohydrate source. As long as the bran and germ of the grain are intact, rice 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.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Hill's Prescription Diet Urinary Care c/d Multicare Chicken and Vegetable Stew 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 Hill's Prescription Diet recipe.

Next we have green pea. Green 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 next ingredient is corn starch. Corn starch is derived from the endosperm of the corn kernel. Typically, corn starch is used as a binder in kibble.

Then we have natural chicken liver flavor. As the name implies, natural chicken liver flavor provides chicken liver flavor to the product. This particular flavor is derived from natural sources which may or may not include real chicken liver.

Moving on, we have powdered cellulose. Powdered cellulose is produced from minuscule pieces of wood pulp and plant fibers. Other than its fiber content, powdered cellulose lacks any nutritional contribution.

Moving on with this review, we have soybean oil. Soybean oil is an omega-6 fatty acid source. Unlike other oils (flax, canola, etc), soybean oil does not provide omega-3 fatty acids; However, the balancing omega-3 fatty acids are most likely supplied by another oil or fat source in the product.

The remaining ingredients in this Hill's Prescription Diet Urinary Care c/d Multicare recipe are unlikely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Our analysis of the ingredients show that this product derives a considerable amount of protein from non-meat ingredients. Since this product is a prescription diet, this property may be required and therefore we cannot make any further statements.

Final Thoughts

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