Pros: Allergy formula, grainless, second and third ingredients are named meat products.
Cons: Insufficient meat content.

The first ingredient in the food is sweet potatoes, and the second potatoes. These are both good quality ingredients and a low-allergenic source of carbohydrates that are high in antioxidants.


The second and third ingredients are both fish - the latter in meal form. These are the sole meat ingredients in the food. Canola oil is a medim quality source of linoleic acid.


This product is likely to be very good for dogs with sensitive tummies or allergies and who cannot tolerate grains in dog food. However, we believe strongly that dog food should be based primarily on meat rather than grains or vegetables. This food would appear to be overwhelmingly vegetable-oriented. We note that the previous version of the food appeared to contain a much more significant meat content. The apparent degradation of meat is the reason this product does not gain the 5-star rating accorded to its predecessor.
