Primary Protein source is chicken which is a good protein source. It is important to mention that label mentions real chicken which may contain 73% moisture, so actually chicken protein may not be the primary source of protein in this product. Egg powder is a good source of protein. Crude protein is 32% which is higher than protein range for adult maintenance diet recommended by FEDIAF.
Fish oil is an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids especially EPA and DHA.Fat is 6.50% which is below minimum fat requirement for maintenance diet recommended by FEDIAF.
Crude Fiber is 9.00 %.Oats, Brown rice, Beet pulp, powdered cellulose are all good source of dietary fiber. High fiber diet reduces passage time of food in the gastrointestinal tract and reduces uptake of nutrients from intestines. So extra allowance of mineral and vitamins should have been made. We cannot find any evidence for this on the printed label.
Vitamins and Minerals are in good form and within recommendations.
Review: Formulation of Obesity food is good. They have concentrated on a high protein, high-quality fiber and low-fat use in this product which is the right approach for obesity diet. But fat content is very low this can lead to fatty acid deficiency and low-quality coat with skin dryness. The best thing about this protein is that high-quality protein source is used with high quantity as well. Which help dog to maintain lean body weight without compromising on essential amino acids and metabolic energy needs.
RECOMMENDATION: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
