Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product, uses primarily good quality ingredients.
Cons: Minimum acceptable meat content

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


It is likely that the most significant ingredient is rice. Two forms of rice are the second and third ingredients in the food which, if not split (see explanation of splitting on the how we assess the foods page) then the combined rice products would most likely outweight the meat content as the true first ingredient in the food. Rice is a decent quality grain and good carbohydrate source, as is barley, the 5th ingredient.


Canola oil provides the fat content which, although a single source oil, is not regarded by all as high quality. It is a useful source of omega 3 & 6 OFAs, as is flaxseed further down the ingredient list.


The food contains no fruits or vegetables, but has a good range of probiotics.


Overall, this product uses primarily good quality ingredients but suffers a little from limited meat content. The macronutrient breakdown is suggestive of a higher meat content than most foods with a single meat meal in the top ingredients, however, and the product just attains a 4* rating.
