Turkey Meal Kibble Ingredient

This ingredient is an excellent source of protein for dogs as well as adds flavor. The essential amino acids help to build and support muscle and organ development.

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.

Oatmeal is a source of complex carbohydrates, releasing sugar and energy gradually, rather than overwhelming the body as simple carbohydrates may. They are a valuable source of dietary fiber, iron, and other essential vitamins.

Oats are especially high in B vitamins, which may aid in breaking down fats for the nervous system and help support muscle tone, skin, hair, and eye health. Oatmeal is considered an excellent source of dietary fiber and key vitamins and minerals.

Brown rice is a wholesome source of fiber and carbohydrates. A perfect choice for dogs, because this kind of complex carbohydrate is easier for them to digest than other kinds of carbohydrates, such as corn and wheat.

Brown rice is low in fat and is an excellent fiber source which promotes digestive health. It is also a good source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids as well as Vitamin E.
