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.

Once again, this grain is finely ground and cooked at high temperatures in order to increase digestibility.

This corn product is ground to a fine flour to make it more digestible and is used to give fuel to your pet. Diamond tests all incoming corn for aflatoxin.

This ingredient provides another kind of energy source for dogs and is from the milo grain. It is cracked and cooked at a high temperature for better digestibility.

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.
