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

The first ingredient in the food is a named meat product. This is not a meat meal ingredient, but is a non-dehydrated ingredient that is inclusive of water content (about 80%). Once this is removed, as it must be to create a dry product, the ingredient will weigh around 20% of its wet weight. Ingredients are listed in order of weight and it is thus unlikely that in dehydrated form this ingredient would truely be the primary ingredient in the food, but instead is a minor inclusion that would be more accurately placed much further down the ingredient list. The true primary meat ingredient is the second ingredient, which is in meal form. With a meat product heading the ingredient list and only two grains ahead of the fat content, we are given some confidence that the product probably contains an acceptable amount of meat.


The main grains are rice and barley, both of which are decent quality. Oatmeal is a further grain, and potato protein boosts the protein content of the food (although this is not a high quality protein compared to meat). Tomato pomace is filler, but the food otherwise contains some fruit/vegetable matter.


Overall, this product uses primarily good quality ingredients. A higher meat content would be needed for a better rating.
