Pro-tip: chicken meal should be the second ingredient on the list. Ingredients are listed by order of pre-cooked weight, so if chicken meal is listed after chicken you know your dog will still be getting plenty of meat protein.
When you purchase dog food that says it includes real chicken, make sure that any meat meal is listed as “chicken meal”. “Chicken by-product meal” comes from a lower quality source, and this is also true of meat meals that do not specify their source. Anything listed just as “meat meal” could come from less than desirable sources such as slaughterhouse waste products.
