Zach’s Premium Puppy Chicken & Rice Formula

During a study at Purdue University it was found that Chicken fat in the first five ingredients of dog foods was linked to bloat in some dogs. We do not like seeing 2 types of yeast, salt or Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex in a dog’s diet. With just 2 ingredients before the fat, this would lead us to believe there is a lot of meat in the food. This is a medium grade dog food.
