Duck in dog food
In pet food, duck can be used as a fresh meat (fresh duck, deboned duck, freshly prepared duck) or as a pre-prepared, dry meat meal (duck meal, dried duck, dehydrated duck). When the ingredient is listed simply as 'duck' it usually refers to the fresh form.
Duck meat is a good source of high quality protein. It is easy for dogs to digest and also scores well in taste tests. Duck meat is also a good source of vitamin A and B3 as well as several minerals.
As with all meats, the quality of the duck used in pet foods can vary considerably so for more details on the duck found in your dog's food, please contact the manufacturer directly.
