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

This is assumed to be white rice and is still considered to be a better than average carbohydrate source for puppy and dog food. Although not as rich in nutrients a brown rice, white rice does provide some proteins, vitamins and minerals to this puppy food as well. Rice is also less likely to be involved in food allergies and so may be a good choice for those with sensitivities to other more common ingredients such as wheat and corn.

Poultry by-product meal is a high source of protein.

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.

Is a high quality protein ingredient, though obviously less ideal than meat. Some critics contend that this kind of bean may cause allergic issues in canines, though opinions vary widely.
