Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product, primarily good quality ingredients
Cons: Controversial filler

The first ingredient in this food is a named meat product, in meal form. It is the sole meat product in the food, but named at 32% gives us confidence that this product contains an adequate (if not sterling) amount of meat.

The main grains in the food are both forms of rice, and it is likely that these (split) ingredients form the bulk of the food. Fat content is sunflower oil, a good source of Omega EFAs. Minor ingredients are oats and peas, both of which are decent quality.

Beet pulp is a controversial filler. It is a by-product, being dried residue from sugar beets which has been cleaned and extracted in the process of manufacturing sugar. It is a controversial ingredient in dog food, claimed by some manufacturers to be a good source of fibre, and derided by others as an ingredient added to slow down the transition of rancid animal fats and causing stress to kidney and liver in the process. We note that beet pulp is an ingredient that commonly causes problems for dogs, including allergies and ear infections, and prefer not to see it used in dog food. There are less controversial products around if additional fibre is required.

We note that there are vitamins and minerals added to the food, but no information is given about these and it may contain synthetics.

Overall, this product uses primarily good quality ingredients and has a reasonable meat content.
