Pea Fiber as a dog food ingredient

Perfect for pets with limited diets, lamb is a highly digestible protein source providing essential amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals for muscle development, energy and coat condition.

Lamb Meal is a dry, rendered product from whole lambs that has been through some processing to remove water and fat. This is a combination of the flesh, bone, as well as the skin of the lamb. It's better to check the quality of the source otherwise, traces of unremoved wool and grain (from the stomach) can be food.

Lamb meal promotes a healthy heart as well as healthy skin! For dogs with sensitivities, lamb meal is a highly digestible protein source providing essential amino acids and fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals for muscle development and energy.

Lentils are not generally in dog foods. This isn’t any problem, they are an acceptable carbohydrate source. And again, your dog will not likely have been exposed to these unless you’ve been cooking for him. It is extremely unlikely to cause an allergic reaction.

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.

This ingredient is source of vegetable protein and a carbohydrate starch.
