Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product
Cons: Insufficient meat content, low quality ingredients of unidentifiable source, controversial filler

The first ingredient in this food is a named meat product, in meal form. It is the sole meat product in the food.

The next two ingredients are both grains. Combined, these grain products are likely to outweigh the meat content by some margin making it a grain heavy food. Corn is a difficult to digest grain of limited value that commonly causes allergy problems. Rice is a decent quality grain.

The fat content in this food is very low quality. It is of unidentifiable source and quality, a product not found in high quality dog foods. Beet pulp is controversial filler which appears to be used in large quantities in this food. It is a by-product, being dried residue from sugar beets which has been cleaned and extracted in the process of manufacturing sugar. It is a controversial ingredient in dog food, claimed by some manufacturers to be a good source of fibre, and derided by others as an ingredient added to slow down the transition of rancid animal fats and causing stress to kidney and liver in the process. We note that beet pulp is an ingredient that commonly causes problems for dogs, including allergies and ear infections, and prefer not to see it used in dog food. There are less controversial products around if additional fibre is required. Hydrolysed poultry is a further low quality ingredient of unidentifiable source.

The food has vitamins and minerals added, but no information is given about these and synthetics may or may not be present.
