Pros: Uses good quality ingredients
Cons: Insufficient meat content

The first three ingredients in this food are grains. Oatmeal, barley and millet are all good quality grains with high digestibility, but they are still grains whereas food designed for canines should be based on meat. The sole meat product in the food, ocean fish meal, does not occur until fourth on the ingredient list, raising doubts about the adequacy of this food.


We note that whilst the manufacturer has recently changed the fish products in its forumlas, we are unable to locate a guarantee on their website that the ingredients are free of ethoxyquin. Ethoxyquin is a chemical preservative commonly added to fish products and which is banned or heavily regulated in human food production due to the belief that it is carcinogenic.


The food contains a useful range of fruits and oils, though tomato pomace is primarily filler.
