We'll begin this review of Instinct Original Canned Rabbit Formula with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is rabbit. Although rabbit is an excellent protein source, raw rabbit contains more than 60% moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of rabbit 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 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 third ingredient is water, which of course provides moisture.
The fourth ingredient is 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.
The fifth ingredient is montmorillonite clay. Montmorillonite clay is a naturally occurring group of minerals which are believed to provide resistance to various environmental toxins. In addition, montmorillonite clay is often used as an anti-caking agent in pet food.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Instinct Original Canned Rabbit 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 Instinct recipe.
Next we have tricalcium phosphate. Tricalcium phosphate is typically used for its mineral contents. However, it can also be used to evenly disperse fat in wet food products.
The next 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.
Then we have carrot, which are naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant.
The remaining ingredients in this Instinct Original Canned 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.
In summary, we recognize that this product does not contain any artificial colors, artificial preservatives, or anonymous meat ingredients.
The official PawDiet rating for Instinct Original Canned Rabbit Formula is 4.0 out of 5.
