Pros:
Cons: Zero meat content, low quality grains

This product is a veterinary diet, and our comments relate solely to the quality of ingredients used to make it. This is not intended to, nor can it, replace veterinary advice relating to the management of disease.


This product contains no meat, beyond the animal digest used for flavouring. Digest itself is not a high quality ingredient, and in this product, is of unidentifiable species and source.


The main ingredients are low quality grains. Corn is a difficult to digest grain of limited value in dog food. It is also commonly associated with allergy problems. Brewers rice is another low quality grain and byproduct. Egg product is the main source of protein in this food - we would prefer to see the use of better quality whole eggs. The minimal energy content of the food comes in part from sugar, which in normal circumstances is an ingredient we would be horrified to see in dog food.


We note the use of synthetic vitamin K, a substance linked to liver problems and that is progressively being removed from better quality products.
