Pros: First, second and fifth ingredients are named meat products
Cons: Minimum acceptable meat content, limited product information

The first two ingredients in this food are named meat products, as is the fifth. Two of these are meat inclusive of water content (around 80%). Once this is removed as it must be to create a dehydrated product, the ingredients will weigh about 20% of their wet weight. As ingredients are listed in weight order, it is thus unlikely that these are truely the first and fifth ingredients in the food, but would be more accurately placed further down the ingredient list. The second ingredient, in meal form, is likely the true first ingredient and primary meat product in the food.


The third, fourth and sixth ingredients are grains, all ahead of the fat content. Barley, rice and oats are decent quality grains and good carbohydrate sources, but this begins to look a slightly grain-heavy food. Fat content is a blend of good quality oils providing a good source of Omega 3/6 OFAs. We appreciate the use of whole eggs, a range of fruits and vegetables, and the inclusion of a good range of priobiotics in the food.


Information on this product is lacking in macronutrient breakdown, thus the review and overall rating is provided on the strength of ingredient list alone. We suggest that potential purchasers examine the macronutrient breakdown to satisfy themselves that it is consistent with a reasonable meat content prior to purchase.
