Pros: Second and third ingredients are named meat products. Uses primarily good quality ingredients. Grainless.
Cons: Minimum acceptable meat content.

The main ingredient in the food is potatoes. Potatoes are a good carbohydrate source and a very good alternative for dogs that do not tolerate grains. There is a further potato ingredient 5th on the ingredient list (potato fibre), but this is non-nutritious filler.


The second and third ingredients are both named meat products. The first of these is duck inclusive of its water content (about 80%) and once that is removed it is likely that this ingredient would be more accurately placed somewhat further down the ingredient list (ingredients are listed in order of weight). The meal version is the third ingredient in the food.


Canola oil is a good source of linoleic acid, and both salmon oil and flaxseed are good sources of Omega 6 and Omega 3 essential fatty acids.


Overall, this looks to be a good option for allergic dogs or those who cannot tolerate grains in the diet. We are not confident that the meat content of the food is significant, however.
