Pros: Second ingredient is a named meat products
Cons: Insufficient meat content, some mixed quality grain

The first ingredient in this food is a grain. Rice is a decent quality grain, but is still a grain which is not a natural foodstuff for a canine. Dog food products should be based on meat rather than grain.

The second ingredient is a named meat product, in meal form. It is the sole meat product in the food and our confidence that the product contains adequate meat is limited. Users of this product might consider supplementing the diet with meat.

Corn oil is the major fat source in the food. Although a single source oil, not all agree that this is good quality. Corn is also commonly associated with food allergies in dogs. Rice gluten meal is "the dried residue from rice after the removal of the larger part of the starch and germ, and separation of the bran by the process employed in the wet milling manufacture of rice starch or syrup, or by enzymatic treatment of the endosperm". Although a grain fragment, and inferior to whole rice, this ingredient is better quality than the gluten meal from corn which is an ingredient we prefer not to see used. Overall, the grain content of the food is of mixed quality but excludes really low quality grains.

The food has added vitamins and minerals, but no information about these is given and it may contain synthetics.
