Before Grain Pork Dry Dog Food


Main Ingredients

  • Pork – is the primary source of protein in this dry dog food formula. Pork is taken mainly from the flesh and muscle of the pig. It adds a unique flavor and plenty of nutrients to this tasty formula.
  • Pork Meal – is an incredible source of protein and may contain even more protein content than the pork listed above. Since pork meal is a concentrated form of meat, it contains up to 300% more protein than its fresh counterpart.
  • Dehydrated Potato – preserves the vital nutrients of the potato. This ingredient contains natural vegetable-based carbs along with many vitamins and minerals.
  • Dried Pork Protein – provides a third source of concentrated protein. The moisture is taken out and we’re left with pure protein which is combined into these kibbles.
  • Beef Fat – is a source of essential amino acids which are essential to your dog’s overall health and well-being. The fat also adds some extra flavor to this dry dog food formula.
