Ingredients Analysis

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

Chicken is naturally rich in the 10 essential amino acids required by a dog to sustain life.

The second ingredient is chicken liver. This is an organ meat sourced from a named animal and thus considered a beneficial component.

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

The fourth ingredient is organic beets, the root portion of a sugar beet plant. As the name implies, beets contain a high concentration of sucrose (sugar).

The fifth ingredient is organic cranberries, a nutrient-rich fruit that’s also high in fiber.

The sixth ingredient is organic spinach. Due to its exceptional vitamin and mineral content, spinach exhibits a remarkably high nutrient Completeness Score 2 of 91

The seventh ingredient is sunflower seeds, a good source of plant-based fatty acids that are also rich in vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber.

The eighth ingredient is apple cider vinegar. Apple Cider Vinegar is reported to have benefits to health, from controlling blood sugar, balancing cholesterol and acting as an antimicrobial. Providing enzymes and probiotics is also a reason for inclusion. It must be noted that there have been no studies so far that have found the inclusion of Apple Cider Vinegar in the diets of dogs to provide health benefits.

This recipe has three notable exceptions.

It contains a number of organic ingredients, we feel compelled to grant this line a more favorable status as we consider its final rating. That’s because organic ingredients must comply with notably more stringent government standards — standards that significantly restrict the use of any synthetic pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, hormones or antibiotics.

Next, taurine, an important amino acid associated with the healthy function of heart muscle. Although taurine is not typically considered essential in canines, some dogs have been shown to be deficient in this critical nutrient.

Since taurine deficiency appears to be more common in pets consuming grain-free diets, we view its presence in this recipe as a positive addition.

In addition, we note the inclusion of dried fermentation products in this recipe. Fermentation products are typically added as probiotics to aid with digestion.

Nutrient Analysis

Based on its ingredients alone, Raw Dynamic Chicken Formula looks like an above-average frozen raw product.

The dashboard displays a dry matter protein reading of 49.1%, a fat level of 32.7% and an estimated carbohydrate level of 10.2%.

As a group, the brand features a protein content of 46.4% and a mean fat level of 26.5%. Together these figures suggest a carbohydrate content of 19% for the overall product line, alongside a fat-to-protein ratio of 57%.

This means Raw Dynamic frozen raw range contains above-average protein, below-average carbohydrate, and near-average fat, when compared to typical frozen raw dog food.
