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 Meal is a dry, rendered product from whole chickens that has been through some processing to remove water and fat. It looks like brown flour, and it's a highly concentrated protein/mineral resource.

Chicken meal is basically chicken with a longer storage time. It's a protein-rich food and also Vitamin B12, Tryptophan, Choline, Zinc, Iron, and Copper resource. However, it's an already processed material in dog food manufacturing and makes the food ultra-processed.

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.

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.

Tapioca is used as a non-nutritive binder in dog foods.
