Chicken

As the first ingredient, in the main protein source in this dog food. An easily digested, lean protein with essential amino acids, chicken is an excellent protein source choice.

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.

Lentils

Peas

Peas are healthy, grain-free filter alternative that contain complex carbohydrates, fiber, protein, phytonutrients, antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. They are also rich in protein and high in fiber.

Lutein in peas is an anti-oxidant good for heart, skin, and eye health. Sterols content in peas help lowering cholesterol. However, peas may be related to Canine Heart Disease and FDA is actively investigating this. 93 percent of reported foods in DCM cases contained peas and/or lentils.

Chicken Fat

(Preserved with Natural Mixed Tocopherols and Citric Acid.)
All dog foods must have a fat source for a healthy diet. This puppy food chose to stay with chicken (same as their animal protein source) to make all the animal products come from a single source. Since it is referred to as Chicken Fat this means you can be sure that you have chicken and not any other poultry source. This can be especially important if your puppy has sensitivities to other protein sources.
