Also corn has linoleic acid, an essential omega-6 fatty acid to maintain healthy skin, coat and immune system.

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.

Whole Grain Wheat contains the entire grain, including the germ, bran and endosperm. This means that it has more antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber than regular wheat.

Chicken Fat is a high quality source of energy and essential fatty acids. For example, chicken fat contains linoleic acid which is an excellent source of the Omega-6 fatty acids. Quality fats support a shiny, healthy coat in dogs.
