Spot and Tango Ingredient Analysis
The first ingredient in this dog food is beef. Beef is defined as “the clean meat of slaughtered cattle” and includes skeletal or muscle tissue of the tongue, diaphragm, heart or esophagus.
Beef is naturally rich in all ten of the essential amino acids a dog needs to sustain life.
The second ingredient is millet, a gluten-free grain made from certain grass seeds. Millet is hypoallergenic and naturally rich in B vitamins and fiber, as well as other essential minerals.
The third ingredient is spinach. Due to its exceptional vitamin and mineral content, spinach has a remarkably high nutritional completeness value of 91.
The fourth ingredient contains Peas. Peas are a great source of carbohydrates. And like all legumes, they are rich in natural fibers.
However, peas contain around 25% protein, a factor that needs to be taken into account when assessing the meat content of this dog food.
The fifth ingredient list Cranberries, a nutritious fruit that is also high in fiber.
The sixth ingredient contains Eggs. Eggs are easy to digest and have exceptionally high biological value.
The seventh ingredient is parsley. Due to its exceptional vitamin and mineral content, parsley has a remarkably high nutritional completeness value of 91.
The eighth ingredient is Apple Cider Vinegar, an item of only modest nutritional value to a dog. We’d assume it’s used here to adjust the pH of this recipe.
From here the list contains a Number of other articles.
But to be realistic, ingredients that are so low on the list are (other than dietary supplements) likely not to be influenced the overall rating of this product.
Notable at 2 Exceptions…
First we find Safflower oil. Safflower oil is nutritionally similar to sunflower oil. Because these oils are rich in omega-6 fatty acids and contain no omega-3 fatty acids, they are considered less nutritious than canola or flaxseed oils.
Safflower oil is characterized by its resistance to heat damage when cooking.
And finally the Minerals The ones listed here don’t appear to be chelated. And that can make it harder to absorb. Chelated minerals are usually associated with higher quality dog foods.
Fresh Spot and Tango dog food looks like one just because of its ingredients above average wet product.
The dashboard shows a dry matter protein value of 39%, a fat content of 19% and an estimated carbohydrate of around 33%.
As a group, the brand has an average protein content of 41% and an average fat content of 20%. Taken together, these numbers indicate a carbohydrate content of 31% for the entire product line.
And a fat-protein ratio of around 49%.
Above average protein. Below average fat. And above average carbohydrates compared to a typical wet dog food.
Even when you factor in the protein-boosting effects of peas, this still looks like the profile of a fresh dog food that contains a significant amount of meat.

We are delighted with the quality of this product and will be lifelong customers. “
Actual buyer rating… “I have a very picky eleven year old racing greyhound that is retired. So the challenge of finding high quality food that she will actually eat and that won’t cost a small fortune was big. I had tried a few other fresh / lightly cooked dog food delivery services before I found Spot & Tango and I absolutely love how convenient and affordable it is, and my older girl seems to have the energy of a puppy so win / Win! “
