Natural Choice Large Breed Puppy 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.


Natural Choice Large Breed Puppy Dog Food First Five Ingredients:




  1. Chicken
  2. Ground Rice
  3. Corn Gluten Meal
  4. Wheat Flour
  5. Rice Bran
Chicken is the first 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.

The second ingredient is Ground Rice and is of decent quality. Rice provides additional carbohydrates and proteins to the recipe.

Corn Gluten Meal is the third ingredient. Corn provides your dogs with no nutritional value. Dog’s digestive systems have a hard time digesting this ingredient. If you feed your dog a corn kernel, you will get a corn kernel out. Corn in excess has also been linked to many cases of dog allergies.

Wheat flour is the fourth ingredient. This ingredient is one we don't want to see in dog food. Wheat flour is the number one ingredient that has been linked to numerous cases of dog allergies.

Rice Bran is a grain and also a filler. This ingredient offers no nutritional value to this dog food.
