  2. Brown Rice
  3. Rice
  4. Chicken Fat
  5. Oatmeal
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 makes up the second and third 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”.
