Deboned Salmon

While this doesn’t include the weight of bones, the fact that this isn’t dehydrated or a meal product means that much of the weight is liquid. If you want a product that is mainly salmon, you’ll have to look elsewhere. This one has some, but it is probably not the main protein in the food.

Menhaden Fish Meal

Usually a questionable protein source, fish meal in Blue Buffalo formulas is said to contain no fish by-products. Made from high quality fish parts, this fish meal could offer an excellent source of highly concentrated animal protein as well as the essential fatty acids and other nutrients fish is thought to contain.

Brown Rice

A perfect choice for pets, this kind of complex carbohydrate is easier for them to digest than other kinds of carbohydrates, such as corn and wheat. The bran portion provides essential B vitamins and has plenty of fiber to promote good colon health.

Chicken Meal

Chicken meal is a dry, rendered product from whole chickens that has been through some processing to remove water and fat. It looks like brown flour and it's a highly concentrated protein/mineral resource.

Chicken meal is basically chicken with a longer storage time. It's a protein rich food and also Vitamin B12, Tryptophan, Choline, Zinc, Iron, and Copper resource. However, it's an already processed material in dog food manufacturing and makes the food ultra-processed.

Rice Bran

May be a filler ingredient, contributing to a feeling of fullness after your pet eats it.
