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.

Brown Rice is the second ingredient and is a decent quality grain that adds additional protein and carbohydrates to your dog’s food.
