Whole Grain Corn in Dog Food

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.

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.

Whole Grain Corn contains bran, cereal germ, and endosperm as a whole instead of just the endosperm. Corn is a fibrous grain and it provides easily digestible carbohydrates that makes it a key energy source. Also corn has linoleic acid, an essential omega-6 fatty acid to maintain healthy skin, coat and immune system.

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