- Chicken meal – is a desirable ingredient, especially for dry dog food. This concentrated chicken product contains about three times the protein of chicken.
- Ground whole brown rice – is a desirable grain ingredient. It is regarded as a highly digestible grain. This is in contraast to more common dry dog food ingredients like wheat and corn, which may cause allergy issues in canines.
- Ground whole white rice – is very similar to the above ingredient. The presence of both ground whole brown rice and ground whole white rice implies that chicken meal is, in fact, not the main ingredient of this pet food—rice is. However, this is a common trait in dog food products.
- Chicken fat – is a highly digestible fat source, and is often added to puppy foods.
- Oat bran – is another high quality grain item, loaded with fiber and fatty acids.
