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.

Brown rice is the best kind of rice to be eating because it is a more wholesome source of fiber and carbohydrates. A perfect choice for pets, this kind of complex carbohydrate is easier for them to digest than other kinds of carbohydrates, such as corn and wheat. The bran portion provides essential B vitamins and has plenty of fiber to promote good colon health.
