About our Wholesome Ingredients
Chicken provides high-quality protein that maintains muscle mass and strength. It delivers wholesome calcium and phosphorus in the proper ratios, as well as the other essential macro and trace minerals. Chicken is one of the few natural sources of chondroitin, a compound critical to large-breed skeletal health. Different types of meat vary in essential fatty acid levels—chicken and pork are the richest in fatty acids, while lamb and beef are both relatively low.
Chicken meal is highly digestible and an excellent source of amino acids and quality protein. It is also very palatable to dogs.
Brown rice contains a generous supply of B vitamins, calcium, phosphorus, and iron. As a source of complex carbohydrates, it provides quick energy and is protein-rich. Like all cereal grains, brown rice is an important source of fat, essential fatty acids and amino acids, dietary fiber, and trace minerals.
Oats are an unsurpassed source of the complex carbohydrates that give animals energy.
The highest of all animal sources in linoleic acid, chicken fat is an important element for skin and coat health. It is very palatable, high in essential fatty acids, and easily and quickly metabolized.
Menhaden Fish Meal:
Fish meal is highly palatable and an excellent source of protein, fish oils, and Omega-3 fatty acids—all critical for a healthy skin and coat, normal reproduction, proper body function, and improved puppy growth rate. Menhaden is one of the richest sources of linoleic and linolenic acids. It also contains high levels of lysine, tryptophan, valine, methionine, and tyrosine, which aid growth, neuro-transmitter function, muscle metabolism, protein synthesis, and thyroid health, respectively. Additionally, Menhaden contains s
