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.

Turkey Meal is a dry, rendered product from whole turkeys that has been through some processing to remove water and fat. It's a highly concentrated protein/mineral resource.

Turkey meal is basically turkey with a longer storage time and no moisture. It's a protein rich food and also magnesium and zinc resource for the health of your dog’s skin and coat. 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.

Menhaden Fish Meal offer an excellent source of highly concentrated animal protein as well as the essential fatty acids and other nutrients menhaden fish contain.
