Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product
Cons: Insufficient meat content

The first ingredient in this food is a named meat product in meal form. It is the sole meat product in the food, giving us little confidence that there is sufficient meat content here. It is a fish meal ingredient but we find no guarantee on the manufacturers website that protein sources are ethoxyquin-free (ethoxyquin is a chemical preservative commonly added to fish destined for meal, and is believed to be carcinogenic).


The next ingredients - rice, sweet potatoes and pumpkin meal are all reasonable quality, but this does not compensate for low meat content. Any users of the product might consider adding meat to this diet.


Canola is a single source oil, but not all agree that it is good quality. Salmon oil aids omgega 3/6 OFA content. There are no fruits/vegetables in the food, though it does have a range of probiotics. We note that this product includes synthetic vitamin K, a substance linked to liver problems and that is progressively being removed from better quality dog food products.
