Top 5 Ingredients: Duck, Duck Meal, Chicken Meal, Sweet Potatoes, Peas
The first ingredient in this Taste of the Wild Wetlands Canine Formula with Roasted Fowl recipe is duck and it is followed by duck meal. Duck is a premium ingredient for a number of reasons. Not only is it a quality source of animal protein, but it is also a novel protein for many dogs – this means that it has a low risk for triggering food allergies and sensitivities. Supplementary proteins included in this recipe are chicken meal, a highly concentrated source of animal protein, egg product, ocean fish meal, roasted quail, roasted duck, and smoked turkey. It is a little troubling to see potato protein included in this recipe though, with a crude protein content of 32%, it is unlikely to contribute significantly to the overall protein content of this recipe.
In addition to being rich in animal protein, this formula also contains plenty of animal fats. The primary source of fat used in this recipe is chicken fat. Though this ingredient may not sound appetizing to you, it is a highly concentrated source of energy for dogs and a valuable addition to this recipe. For carbohydrates, this recipe relies on sweet potatoes, peas, and potatoes – all gluten-free and grain-free sources of digestible carbohydrate. Tomato pomace acts as a supplementary source of fiber and the dried chicory root contains inulin which acts as a prebiotic to support the growth of healthy bacteria in your dog’s digestive tract.
The remaining ingredients in this Taste of the Wild Wetlands Canine Formula with Roasted Fowl recipe consist primarily of natural flavors, extracts, and supplements. In terms of supplements, the two worth mentioning are the dried fermentation products and the chelated minerals. Dried fermentation products act as probiotics to support your dog’ healthy and regular digestion. Chelated minerals are minerals that have been chemically bound to protein molecules, making them easier for your dog’s body to absorb and utilize. Natural sources for key nutrients are always better than supplements, however, so it is a good thing to see fresh tomatoes, blueberries, and raspberries included in this recipe.
