Diamond Naturals All Life Stages Dog Chicken & Rice Formula Dry Dog Food Ingredients
Deboned chicken flesh and skin that supplies plenty of protein and vitamins.
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.
Whole Grain Brown Rice
Whole grain source of easily digestible carbohydrates.
Cracked Pearled Barley
Barley has more protein than rice and is a slow burning carbohydrate that has a good effect on blood sugar levels.
(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.
