Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product.
Cons: Insufficient meat content, use of low quality grains and animal products.

The first ingredient is a named meat product in meal form. This is the sole meat product in the food.


Rice is a decent quality grain, but the use of wheat is a significant negative: wheat is believed to be the number one cause of allergy problems in dog food. This is another ingredient we prefer not to see used at all in dog food. Soybean hulls are pure junk filler, being the outer casing of soybeans. Soy is a poor quality source of protein in dog food, and a common cause of allergy problems. Some believe that it is the number 1 cause of food allergies in dogs (outstripping even wheat).


Animal (lamb) digest is a further low quality ingredient which AAFCO define as "material which results from chemical and/or enzymatic hydrolysis of clean and undecomposed animal tissue. The animal tissues used shall be exclusive of hair, horns, teeth, hooves and feathers, except in such trace amounts as might occur unavoidably in good factory practice and shall be suitable for animal feed".
