Ingredient Analysis

When evaluating a dog food, the first five ingredients can tell you a lot about the quality of a product as they make up the bulk of the product. Ideally, you're looking for quality protein sources with a minimum of cheap starches, fillers or by-products. Continuing down the ingredient list, look for ingredients that resemble real food with a minimal number of unpronounceable chemicals - the same as you would for human food.

Natural Balance Delectable Delights Woof'erole Wet Cups includes the following:

Quality Ingredients

  • tuna
  • turkey

Questionable Ingredients

  • guar gum
  • carrageenan

Potential Allergens

  • fish broth
  • tuna

Note - a bolded ingredient in the above tables indicates it is one of the first five ingredients listed by the product manufacturer.

Although not the first product listed (which is the most plentiful), Natural Balance Delectable Delights Woof'erole Wet Cups does contain with its top ingredients tuna and turkey which are considered quality protein sources.

Additionally, it's worth noting that this product does not list either by-products nor bulk-adding fillers within its top ingredients. By-products are considered inferior, lesser quality ingredients. Common fillers typically used to add bulk to the product are not required in your dog's diet. Together, their combined absence may be indicative of a higher quality product.

Please also be aware that this product contains guar gum and carrageenan, which are additives that some experts claim may be possible contributors to certain medical conditions in dogs.

Allergen alert: This product contains fish broth and tuna which may be problematic for dogs who suffer from seafood food allergies.

*Note that some nutritional percentages reported are only estimated values, and are indicated as such as (est). Each dog food manufacturer is required by law to publish a Guaranteed Analysis, which defines each product's maximum values of fiber, moisture and ash in addition to the minimum values of protein and fat contained within. Exact nutritional percentages are not available and hence all calculated values (including carbohydrate percentages and calorie amounts) are determined using these minimum and maximum published values and therefore may differ from actual values.
