Pros: First three ingredients are named meat products, uses good quality ingredients throughout.
Cons:

The first three ingredients in this food are all named meat products. The first two of these are meat inclusive of water content (about 80%) and once that is removed it is likely that these ingredients would be more accurately placed somewhat further down the ingredient list (ingredients are listed in order of weight). However, since they are followed by a meat meal ingredient, we can have confidence in the level of meat content of the food. There is a further meat ingredient 10th on the list, but this is too far down to make up a substantive portion of the food. It is herring, a good natural source of Omega essential fatty acids.


The main grains are barley and rice. Both are whole grains and good quality sources of carbohydrates and additional protein. Potatoes are likewise a good quality carbohydrate source. The food contains a range of fruits and vegetables, as well as whole eggs. Sunflower oil is a good quality source of linoleic acid.


Overall, this is a very good quality food with a good amount of meat and that uses high quality ingredients throughout. The food contains no fillers, grain fragments, or other nasties that commonly cause problems for dogs.
