Beef is a common ingredient in dog kibble due to its high protein content and palatability. It is a rich source of essential nutrients, including vitamins B12 and B6, as well as zinc and iron. These nutrients support healthy muscle growth and maintenance, and help to maintain a healthy immune system.

In addition, beef is a good source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which support healthy skin and coat.

This is also a great source of protein and is higher in protein concentration than raw beef.

Garbanzo Beans, aka chickpeas, are a good source of plant-based protein and fiber for dogs. They are also low in fat and contain a range of essential vitamins and minerals, including zinc, iron, and magnesium.


Garbanzo beans can support healthy weight management and provide a nutritious alternative to traditional protein sources.

Lentils are not generally in dog foods. This isn’t any problem, they are an acceptable carbohydrate source. And again, your dog will not likely have been exposed to these unless you’ve been cooking for him. It is extremely unlikely to cause an allergic reaction.
