Lamb Meal is a dry, rendered product from whole lambs that has been through some processing to remove water and fat. This is a combination of the flesh, bone, as well as the skin of the lamb. It's better to check the quality of the source otherwise, traces of unremoved wool and grain (from the stomach) can be food.

Lamb meal promotes a healthy heart as well as healthy skin! For dogs with sensitivities, lamb meal is a highly digestible protein source providing essential amino acids and fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals for muscle development and energy.

This is a better concentration of protein than raw food materials.

Sweet Potatoes are an excellent source of fiber and complex carbohydrates. They don’t cause food sensitivities in dogs and also are an excellent source of beta-carotene, phytochemicals, and carotenoids – all which are healthy immune supporting antioxidants.
