There are many different types of dog foods available in the supermarkets, pet shops and online stores. We can choose from raw diets and wet foods in cans and pouches to dry kibbles in boxes and bags. However, if we were to reduce them to their basic composition, they’re just a number of ingredients that our dogs bodies need to grow and stay healthy. These basic ingredients come in a series of groups we are all familiar with — carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals and vitamins. Each class of ingredient is very important for the way our dogs bodies work and are included for a reason. Take our Grain Free Turkey with Sweet Potato & Cranberry adult recipe for example. The list of ingredients are as follows:
Turkey 50% (including Freshly Prepared Turkey 28%, Dried Turkey 20% & Turkey Stock 2%), Sweet Potato (26%), Peas (9%), Potato, Beet Pulp, Linseed, Omega 3 Supplement, Minerals, Vitamins, Vegetable Stock, Cranberry (0.3%), FOS (96 mg/kg), MOS (24 mg/kg)
Why have each of these ingredients been added to the recipe? We have put together a number of tables below to try and explain each ingredient and why it has been included in our recipes. The tables are split into three categories; Proteins and Carbohydrates, Supplements and Care Packs.
We are always available for any questions or advice on any of our foods. We can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
