Chicken by-products meal as a dog food ingredient

Lamb is a great source of protein. Candide lamb comes from the highest quality of raw lamb available.

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.
