Salmon is a high protein food and also rich in omega-3 fatty acids while having very low saturated fat.

Omega-3s moisturize the skin and fight skin disorders and the vitamin B12 in salmon keeps blood and nerve cells healthy.

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.

Whole Grain Wheat contains the entire grain, including the germ, bran and endosperm. This means that it has more antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber than regular wheat.

Barley is source of carbohydrates for energy, B vitamins and fiber for a healthy digestive system. In some cases it has been known to lower cholesterol. It's a good alternative grain for dogs that are allergic to corn or wheat.

This ingredient is probably white rice which is slightly lower in nutritional value than the brown rice listed above. White rice undergoes further processing vs. brown rice and due to this fact that it loses some of these properties. It is still a low-fat carbohydrate source and also provides some protein to this diet.
