It was a toss up between Kal Kan® and Gravy Train® from the #1 spot. Both products contain identical ingredients and have low nutritional value for your dog. We highly recommend a product that contains
High in high-quality protein (muscle meat, not pieces and parts) High amino acid
Moderate levels of animal fat. Omega 3 – 6 are excellent for your dogs health.
High levels of EPA/DHA
High moisture content (prey is 70 percent water)
A few fresh cut veggies and a bit of fruit (to mimic stomach contents of prey)
No grains (carnivores don’t have a biologic requirement for grain)
No wads of potatoes or other starches to offset meat content
BHA: BHA is a highly controversial preservative that is used on many pet food products. It is linked to cancer causing agents.
ANIMAL DIGEST: Unspecified parts of unspecified animals which are cooked to a goopy broth (rendered) and used as a spray-on or added directly to the food. This is unsuitable for human consumption. The grease that rises to the top is used as a source of fat and the rest of the mash is dried and used as “meat meal”. No quality control is used and this can be a variety mix of dead, diseased, disabled, or dying prior to slaughter, goats, pigs, horses, rats or road kill.
Salt: Causes bloat in dogs if consumed in high doses.
