Pros: Second ingredient is a named meat product, uses primarily good quality ingredients
Cons: Insufficient meat content

The first ingredient in this food is potato. Potato is a good quality carbohydrate and B-vitamin source, but the primary ingredient in any dog food should be meat rather than plant/grain.


The second ingredient is a named meat product, in meal form. This is the sole meat product in the food. Fat content is sunflower and fish oils, providing a good source of omega OFAs. The food has added vitamins and minerals, but little information is given about these and may contain synthetics.


Overall, the food appears to use primarily good quality ingredients and is a simple recipe likely to be very useful for dogs suffering allergies. Our sole concern with the food is that the meat content appears minimal, and users might consider supplementing this diet with meat.
