Chicken is an excellent source of healthy protein for dogs. It is filled with essential amino acids to build strong muscles and help to maintain organs and tissue.

In addition to being a flavor that dogs love, chicken also delivers Omega 6 fatty acids that help sustain healthy skin and shiny coats along with B3 and B6 vitamins, phosphorous and selenium as well.

Chicken By-Product Meal is rendered mix of less desirable parts (eg. gizzards, giblets, feet), internal organs (eg. lungs, spleen, liver, heart, kidneys) and bones of a chicken.

Chicken by-products are protein rich like chicken and also it's a natural source of Chondroitin Sulfate and Glucosamine. However, it's an already processed material in dog food manufacturing and makes the food ultra-processed.

This provides easily digestible carbohydrates.

Wheat flour is a source of vegetable protein.

Egg Product is a processed form of egg that has been powdered, or otherwise treated to extend its shelf life. It may contain whole eggs, egg whites, or egg yolks.

Egg product is a good source of protein and other essential nutrients for dogs. It is also highly digestible, making it easy for dogs to absorb and utilize the nutrients it contains.
