Pros: Fourth ingredient is a named meat product.
Cons: Inadequate meat content, liberal use of low quality grain and filler.

The first ingredient in this food is a low quality grain. Even if good quality grain were used, we would not choose any food that does not contain meat as the primary ingredient. Corn is a difficult to digest grain, which limits its nutritional value for dogs. We consider this to be a low quality ingredient. It is also commonly associated with allergy and skin problems. Wheat is a grain very commonly associated with allergy problems that we prefer not to see used, and in this form is filler. We prefer not to see the use of these grains in dog food.


Soybean meal, the ground remains of soybeans after extraction of oil, provides additional low quality protein to the food. We prefer not to see the use of any form of soy in dog food as this is an ingredient of low quality and commonly causing allergy problems.


The sole meat ingredient in the food is pork meal, and does not occur until fourth on the ingredient list. This is a food with extremely little meat content and, in our opinion, not suitable for feeding a carnivore.
