We'll begin this review of Primal Raw Frozen Formulas Canine Quail Formula with a detailed discussion of the ingredients.
The first ingredient is quail (ground with bone). Quail is a medium size game bird and an excellent novel protein source. However, raw quail contains a significant amount of moisture. After cooking, the relative meat contribution of quail 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. Furthermore, this ingredient contains ground quail bones, which are an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus.
The second ingredient is organic celery. Although organic celery contains roughly 95% moisture, it's still an excellent source of dietary fiber. Celery also provides a modest amount of vitamins and minerals.
The third ingredient is organic kale. Organic kale is a nutritionally dense dark green vegetable rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Kale also contains sulforaphane, a compound believed to have anti-cancer properties.
The fourth ingredient is organic squash. Organic squash is an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
The fifth ingredient is organic pumpkin seeds. Organic pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid. Pumpkin seeds also provide a notable amount of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
Because ingredients are listed in order of pre-cooked weight, the remaining ingredients in Primal Raw Frozen Formulas Canine Quail 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 Primal recipe.
Next we have organic sunflower seed, which are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats.
The next ingredient is organic blueberry. Organic blueberries are an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese.
Then we have organic cranberry. Organic cranberries are rich in dietary fiber and provide a modest amount of vitamins such as vitamin C and minerals such as manganese.
The remaining ingredients in this Primal Raw Frozen Formulas 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 Primal Raw Frozen Formulas Canine Quail Formula is 4.0 out of 5.
