The first and third ingredients – ground lamb (15%), ground pork (14%) – are protein sources. The manufacturer’s website also states that the feed contains 60% animal protein and 40% vegetable (but not from grains). The sources of the latter are beans, lentils. Although beans and lentils are mostly carbohydrate sources, just like peas.

Boreal dog food – reviews
Dry food has recently appeared in Russia, but there are already reviews about them on the Internet. Below we have shared a few of the most informative ones.
We had eaten Acana for a long time before, but due to the closure of many stores, we had to look for new food. We didn’t regret trying this particular food. They translated it immediately, did not partially, there were no problems. The dog has been eating it with great pleasure for almost a month now. The dog has an excellent “chair”)))) Bimka feels great on this stern.
The food smells very appetizing. The daily dosage, like all premium food, is small, do not be confused by this, the dog is eating up. We feed 2 times a day… My dog weighs 12 kg, average activity. Granules, of course, are much smaller than those of Akana, I am attaching a photo. When we finish this one, try a different flavor of the same brand.
Granules are, of course, too small for large breeds. But captivating is that the production is Canada. The bag was almost finished. The dog eats with pleasure, but the quality and quantity of stool is poor and gas production has increased. The dog has lost weight, for us this is a plus, well, but for someone it will be a minus – too tangible. If you increase the portion, then a frustration is provided. It is certain that I will not order the second time. And so they pinned their hopes on him, after all, Canada. You can’t compare with GO.
I am the owner of a very allergic Shar Pei dog, I have tried a lot of food, over time, allergies manifested themselves to everything. Now we opted for this feed, because we liked the composition. The main ingredient is white fish meat, not salmon like in many feeds and there are no grains.
The food was produced in Canada, there is a Russian-language sticker on the package. The price corresponds to the composition. The bag has a convenient fastener. The dog eats with pleasure. Allergies did not appear, but more time is needed to observe.
