Royal Canin MINI Special 30 Dog Food Review

As with all dog food recipes the first thing we are going to look at are the first five ingredients. The first five ingredients are a good indication of the quality of the dog food. When looking at the first five ingredients you want to make sure there is plenty of meat and grains are minimal.

Royal Canin MINI Special 30 Dog Food First Five Ingredients:

  1. Chicken Meal
  2. Chicken
  3. Brown Rice
  4. Brewers Rice
  5. Chicken Fat

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.

Chicken is the second 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.

Rice makes up the third and fourth ingredients. Rice is a decent quality ingredient and adds additional proteins and carbohydrates to the recipe.

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”.
