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.

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.
Minerals (Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate,
Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate
An organic source of magnesium. Magnesium is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Multiple health benefits of magnesium include transmission of nerve impulses, body temperature regulation, detoxification, energy production, and the absorption of calcium, which maintains healthy bones and teeth.
Zinc Amino Acid Chelate,
Zinc Amino Acid Chelate
An organic source of zinc. Zinc is an essential mineral that supports healthy skin and coat. It helps maintain a normal sense of taste and smell, aids in the maintenance of a healthy immune system and helps in the synthesis of DNA and RNA.

The fish oil in RAWZ is derived from tuna. Fish oil supports the health of the skin, coat, joint, kidneys, heart and immune system. Fish oil contains EPA and DHA, essential omega-3 fatty acids that come from fish like salmon, mackerel, herring and tuna. EPA, one of the two omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, acts as an anti-inflammatory. It will help with conditions that causes inflammation of the heart, kidneys, skin and joints as well as ease inflammation due to allergies. DHA, the other omega-3 fatty acid in fish oil, is important in brain and eye development.
Vitamins (Ascorbic Acid (source of Vitamin C),
Ascorbic Acid (source of Vitamin C)
A source of Vitamin C, which aids in collagen synthesis, immune system support, and overall joint and muscular-skeletal health. Ascorbic Acid also acts as a natural preservative.

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.
