Abady State of The Art Formula for Growing Puppies of The Giant Breeds Review

Abady State of The Art Formula for Growing Puppies of The Giant Breeds is lower quality dog food. This formula contains some lower quality ingredients that we prefer not to see in dog food. The meat in this formula is abundant, but comes from unidentified origins.

Abady State of The Art Formula for Growing Puppies of The Giant Breeds First Five Analysis:

  1. Chicken Meal
  2. White Rice
  3. Menhaden Fish Meal (Select Grade)
  4. Chicken By-Products Meal
  5. Beef Meat & Bone Meal
The first ingredient Chicken Meal is a named meat ingredient. This ingredient combined with the third ingredient Menhaden Fish Meal are your main sources of qaulity meat and protein.

The second ingredient, White rice is a decent quality grain.

The fourth ingredient Chicken By-Product can either be a good ingredient, or a horrible ingredient. When a manufacture explains in detail what is included in their By-Product it may be considered a good ingredient, if obviously good ingredients are used. In this case there is no explanation of the quality of ingredients, therefore we must assume that they are lower quality ingredients. Chicken By-Products are the lower quality parts of the Chicken that are rejected from human consumption.

Beef and Bone Meal is a lower quality meat and is defined as: "the rendered product from mammal tissues, including bone, exclusive of blood, hair, hoof, horn, hide trimmings, manure, stomach and rumen contents, except in such amounts as may occur unavoidably in good processing practices."

Abady State Art Formula for Growing Puppies of Larger Breeds final thoughts:

We feel that this formula does not meet our standards of a qaulity dog food brand. I would not recommend this dog food brand. IF, the company disclosed what is in their Chicken By-Products it would make this a better choice of dog food.
