Ingredient Analysis

The first ingredient in this dog food is chicken. Chicken is considered “the clean combination of flesh and skin… derived from the parts or whole carcasses of chicken”.1

The second ingredient is beef organs. Organ meat is typically low in fat and rich in protein.

Chicken and beef are naturally rich in all ten essential amino acids required by a dog to sustain life.

The third ingredient is ground chicken and bone. Chicken is considered “the clean combination of flesh and skin… derived from the parts or whole carcasses of chicken”.2

Chicken is naturally rich in the eleven essential amino acids required by a dog to sustain life. The ground bone is an excellent source of natural calcium.

The fourth ingredient is broccoli. Broccoli is a healthy green vegetable and a member of the kale family. It’s notably rich in vitamin C and fiber and numerous other nutrients.

Like other cruciferous vegetables, broccoli is believed to provide anti-cancer benefits.

The fifth ingredient is carrots. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, minerals and dietary fiber.

The sixth ingredient is sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are a gluten-free source of complex carbohydrates in a dog food. They are naturally rich in dietary fiber and beta carotene.

The seventh ingredient is whole dried egg, a dehydrated powder made from shell-free eggs. Eggs are easy to digest and have an exceptionally high biological value.

K-9 Kraving Dog Food Review

Judging by its ingredients alone, K-9 Kraving Dog Food looks like an above-average raw product.

The dashboard displays a dry matter protein reading of 45.7%, a fat level of 34.3% and estimated carbohydrates of about 12%.

As a group, the brand features an average protein content of 46.4% and a mean fat level of 35.3%. Together, these figures suggest a carbohydrate content of 10.3% for the overall product line.

And a fat-to-protein ratio of about 85%.

Above-average protein. Above-average fat. And below-average carbs when compared to a typical raw dog food.

K-9 Kraving is a grain-free raw dog food using a generous amount of named meats as its main sources of animal protein, thus earning the brand 4.5.

Highly recommended.
