We'll begin this review of Hound & Gatos Grain Free Grass Fed Lamb Recipe For Dogs with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is lamb. Although lamb is an excellent protein source, raw lamb contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of lamb 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 egg. Eggs 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 third ingredient is sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are a common gluten free carbohydrate source in pet food. In addition to its fiber content, sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, an important antioxidant which serves as a precursor to vitamin A.
The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is lamb fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Fat is an important part of your dogs diet, lamb fat in particular is a good source of essential fatty acids.
The remaining ingredients in this Hound & Gatos Grain Free 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 Hound & Gatos Grain Free Grass Fed Lamb Recipe For Dogs is 3.0 out of 5.
