Pros: First and fourth ingredients are named meat products
Cons: Minimum acceptable meat content

The first ingredient in this food is a named meat product. This is meat inclusive of water content (around 80%). Once this is removed as it must be to create a dehydrated product, the ingredient will weigh about 20% of its wet weight. As ingredients are listed in weight order, it is thus unlikely that this is truely the first ingredient in the food, but would be more accurately placed further down the ingredient list. The fourth ingredient, in meal form, is likely the true first ingredient and primary meat product in the food. We note the nclusion of fish meal ingredients, but do not find any statement on the manufacturers website guaranteeing the use of ethoxyquin-free ingredients (ethoxyquin is a chemical preservative commonly added to fish ingredients and which is banned or heavily regulated in human food production, due to the belief that it is carcinogenic).


Barley and oats are the main grains in the food. These are decent quality grains and good carbohydrate sources, but ahead of the first true meat ingredient, this product contains more grain than first glance at the ingredient list may have it appear. Fat content is canola oil, which although a single source oil is not the best quality. Fish ingredients aid Omega 3/6 OFA content.


We appreciate the inclusion of a range of fruits/vegetables and a good range of probiotics. Overall, the product appears to use primarily good quality ingredients but appears light in meat content.
