Royal Canin MINI Puppy 33 Dog Food First Five Ingredients:

  1. Chicken Meal
  2. Brown Rice
  3. Corn Gluten Meal
  4. Chicken Fat
  5. Chicken

Chicken Meal is the first ingredient and is a named meat ingredient. A dog’s diet needs to based on the fact that dogs need meat and protein that derives from meat

Rice is the second ingredient. Rice is a decent quality ingredient and adds additional proteins and carbohydrates to the recipe.

Corn Gluten Meal is the third ingredient. Some believe that’s dog’s digestive systems have a hard time digesting this ingredient. Corn in excess has also been linked to many cases of dog allergies

Chicken Fat is going to be the main source of fat. It’s safe to say that the ingredients before this ingredient are going to make up the majority of the dog food. This is a decent quality ingredient. You want to stay away from unidentified fat sources such as, “Animal Fat”

Chicken is the fifth ingredient in this recipe. This ingredient is inclusive of its water content. Meaning that once the water is removed and this ingredients becomes a dried ingredient it will weigh significantly less, thus making it fall further in the ingredients list.
