Ingredient Review

We'll begin this review of Petcurean Go! Daily Defence Lamb Meal Recipe with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.

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

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

The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is canola oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Because canola oil is actually an improved rapeseed oil, many people are wary of its nutritional impacts.

Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Petcurean Go! Daily Defence Lamb Meal Recipe 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 Petcurean recipe.

Next we have coconut oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols). Coconut oil is an excellent source of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) which are easier to digest and believed to promote skin and coat health.

The remaining ingredients in this Petcurean Go! Daily Defence 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 Petcurean Go! Daily Defence Lamb Meal Recipe is 3.5 out of 5.
