Canine Caviar Ingredients
High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients
- Herring Meal
- Venison Meal
- Buffalo Meal
Canine Caviar uses a large range of meat and fish ingredients in comparison to its overall product range size. This includes the use of some common ingredients such as Chicken and Turkey.
However, it also includes quite a few uncommon meat and fish ingredients such as Venison, Buffalo, and Goat. These ingredients are most regularly found in recipes designed for dogs with allergies and sensitivities. Learn more about these recipes in our article Best Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Guide.
Other Notable Ingredients
Canine Caviar makes use of two of the most common legume ingredients used in dog food – Peas and Chickpeas. These two are favorites of dog food manufacturers thanks to their relatively low cost, yet high protein value. However, there is controversy around the use of legumes in dog food, which you can learn about in our article Peas, Pea Protein, Pea Flour, and Pea Fiber in Dog Food.
Canine Caviar doesn’t just use legumes and also makes use of some grain ingredients such as Millet and Brown Rice. These are considered to be some of the better grains found in dog food thanks to the additional micronutrients and fiber they can provide. Learn more about these ingredients in our article Millet In Dog Food.
Chicken Fat is added to dog food to improve its flavor and boost the levels of animal-based fats. Chicken Fat is chosen over other animal fats as it is very cost-effective. Learn more about Chicken Fat in our article, Chicken Fat In Dog Food.
Alfalfa is added in small quantities to dog food to provide some minor health benefits. Some of these benefits are drawn from the vitamins and minerals that Alfalfa can provide. Learn more about Alfalfa in our article Alfalfa In Dog Food.
Flaxseed is one of the most regular and justified additions to dog food. It is an excellent source of the Omega 3 Fatty Acids. These fatty acids can provide a range of health benefits to dogs of all ages. Learn more about the benefits and flaxseed in our article Flaxseed In Dog Food.
Canine Caviar Animal Testing
At this time, we have no information on what type of testing Canine Caviar participates in.
We strongly believe that invasive or laboratory testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which we hope will be eliminated.
Canine Caviar Recalls
Based on our research, Canine Caviar has had two recalls. These were during 2007 and were related to melamine.
However, since 2007, Canine Caviar has been recall-free, which shows they take the safety and quality of their manufacturing process seriously.
Despite this, we encourage all pet owners to be vigilant of any future recalls of Canine Caviar or any other pet food brand.
