Pros:
Cons: Inadequate meat content, low quality meat products, unidentifiable grains

This product is comprised almost completely of unidentified cereals, likely to be byproducts (think floorsweepings) of human food production. None of these are identified by type and may vary.


The next ingredient in this food is "meat and marrowbone". This is not a meat meal ingredient, but instead is inclusive of water content (about 80%). Once this is removed, as it must be to create a dehydrated product, the ingredient will weigh around 20% of its wet weight. As ingredients are listed in order of weight, it is thus unlikely that this ingredient is truely amongst the most prolific in the food and would be more accurately placed further down the ingredient list. At wet weight comprising only 31% of the food, it is likely that the true meat content of this product is significantly lower. In this instance, however, users may be thankful as this is an extremely low quality ingredient that is not even identifiable by species or source. We prefer to avoid any dog food products using such ingredients.


The protein content of the food is boosted by soy, but Soy is a product we prefer not to see used in dog foods, especially this high on the ingredient list. Soy is a very common cause of food allergy problems, and although boosting the (otherwise minimal) protein content of this food, it is very low quality protein compared to that sourced from meat. Peas are a reasonable quality ingredient.


We note the food has added vitamins and minerals, but no information is given about these and may include synthetics.
