Duck is a great protein source with many nutritional benefits for your pet, including a well-balanced array of amino acids. Duck also contains generous amounts of iron, phosphorus, zinc, copper, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12. Both zinc and selenium are antioxidants that help to boost the immune system. Selenium also helps to maintain normal thyroid function. Another nutritional benefit to duck is its content of omega-3 fatty acids, which help to provide your pet with healthy skin and coat. Many pet owners with dogs that have food allergies prefer foods containing duck, due to the fact that duck is probably one of the best protein sources for dogs that suffer from allergies to other meats.
A reduced-sodium broth essential for a high-moisture food.
Duck liver is an excellent source of high-quality protein. Not only do pets love the flavor, liver is known to be one of the most concentrated sources of natural vitamin A of any food. Liver is also a great source of folic acid and all of the B vitamins (particularly vitamin B12), which help with fatigue, mental ability and nerve health, as well as preventing anemia. Liver also contains one of the best sources of iron. The primary function of iron is oxygen transport and cell respiration. Iron is also necessary for many functions in the body including formation of hemoglobin, brain development and function, regulation of body temperature, muscle activity and metabolism. The iron in liver is one of most easily digestible and usable sources of iron. Duck liver is also particularly abundant in phosphorus, zinc and copper.
Sunflower Oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols),
Sunflower Oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols)
Sunflower oil contains a high level of linoleic acid produced by expressing the oils of sunflower seeds. Sunflower oil is low in saturated fat, which makes it a better choice than oils and fats that are high in saturated fat. Sunflower oil is used to provide essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are fats that must be supplied in the diet because the body cannot produce them. They are required for normal growth and functioning of the cells, muscles, nerves, and organs and the production of prostaglandins. Deficiencies of EFAs are linked to a variety of health problems, including heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
Fenugreek is one of the oldest cultivated medicinal plants native to southern Europe and Asia. The fenugreek seeds act as a binder, which replace inexpensive commercial gum binders. They are naturally rich in many vitamins and minerals. They contain polysaccharides, which lower bad cholesterol and simultaneously bind to toxins to be expressed by the body. Fenugreek seeds contain an amino acid that lowers glucose absorption, which lowers blood sugar, making them a recommended food ingredient for diabetic diets. They are also an excellent source of fiber, which aids in digestion. Fenugreek seeds also contain many powerful phytonutrients, which aid in multiple digestive and neurological functions.

Balanced Nutrition and Digestibility of Ingredients
Balanced nutrition, or the complete portfolio of the ingredients, not single data points of nutrients, are essential for your pet’s health. In addition to nutritional balance, the digestibility of ingredients and the bioavailability of protein and amino acid profiles are also crucial for your pet’s health.
Our typical analysis represents an average using values from ingredient databases and actual lab reports of our foods. This average is not intended to represent exact amounts. This additional nutritional information should be used as a general guide to help you and your veterinarian or nutritionist choose which recipe is best for your unique pet.
