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

The first ingredient is named meat product. It is kangaroo, inclusive of water content (about 80%). Once that is removed, as it must be to create a dehydrated product, the ingredient will weigh around 20% of its wet weight. Ingredients are listed in order of weight, and the dehydrated ingredient would probably be more accurately placed much further down the ingredient list. As it is the sole meat product in the food, we cannot have a great deal of confidence that there is an adequate meat content in this product.


The main grains in the food are rice and sorghum, both of which are decent quality but foods intended for canines should be based on meat rather than grain and there appears to be little meat present in this product. Fat content comes from flaxseed oil, a good source of Omega 3/6 EFAs. The food contains a small amount of fruit in the form of apples.
