Main Ingredients

  • Deboned Chicken – provides one of the main sources of protein for this kibble blend. The meat is taken from various parts of the chicken and the bones are removed first, so none are ground into the mix. Chicken is an excellent source of proteins and amino acids.
  • Chicken Meal – is a concentrated form of chicken meat. In fact, it can contain as much as 300% more protein than regular chicken. It’s also an excellent source of amino acids.
  • Whole Grain Brown Rice – is a wholesome and easily digested grain. Whole grain brown rice contains fiber and other nutrients.
  • Whole Ground Barley – is the second grain found in this mix. It’s also easily digested, and provides some fiber as well as vitamins and mineral that your dog needs.
  • Oatmeal – provides yet another source of whole grain. Oatmeal is also easily digested once cooked and incorporated into this Chicken and Brown Rice blend.
