The first ingredient in this dog food is lamb tripe. Tripe usually consists of the first three chambers of a cud-chewing animal’s stomach. As unappetizing as it may seem to us humans, tripe is favored by dogs and sometimes even includes the stomach’s contents, too.
The second ingredient is water, which adds nothing but moisture to this food. Water is a routine finding in most canned dog foods.
The third ingredient is quinoa. Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is not a true cereal grain but a plant prized for its gluten-free seeds.
Compared to most other grain-type ingredients, it is high in protein (about 12-18%), dietary fiber and other healthy nutrients.
The fourth ingredient includes 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 fifth ingredient lists blueberries. Blueberries are a good source of vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber.
We find no added vitamins or minerals on the ingredients list.

Dog Food Review
Judging by its ingredients alone, PetKind That’s It Dog Food looks like an above-average wet product.
But ingredient quality by itself cannot tell the whole story. We still need to estimate the product’s meat content before determining a final rating.
As a group, the brand features an average protein content of 39% and a mean fat level of 26%. Together, these figures suggest a carbohydrate content of 27% for the overall product line.
And a fat-to-protein ratio of about 66%.
Near-average protein. Above-average fat. And near-average carbs when compared to a typical canned dog food.
Even when you consider the protein-boosting effect of the quinoa, this looks like the profile of a canned product containing a notable amount of meat.
However, with 49% of the total calories in our example coming from fat versus just 29% from protein, some recipes may not be suitable for every animal.
PetKind That’s It is a grain-free canned dog food using a notable amount of named meats as its main source of animal protein, thus earning the brand 4 stars.
Highly recommended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only.
Please note certain recipes are sometimes given a higher or lower rating based upon our estimate of their total meat content and (when appropriate) their fat-to-protein ratios.
