Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product, generally good quality ingredients
Cons: Insufficient meat content

The first ingredient in this food is a named meat product, in meal form. It is the sole meat ingredient in the food.


The next three ingredients are all grains. Oats, Millet and barley are all decent quality grains, but it is likely that combined they will outweigh the meat content of the food by some margin. Quality aside, this appears to be a rather grain heavy product.


The fat content of the food is a mix of canola and salmon oil. Canola, although a single source oil, is not agreed by all to be good quality. Compensated by salmon oil, however, we have no particular concerns with this ingredient.


The food contains a small amount of vegetable matter, and we appreciate the use of whole eggs.


We note the inclusion of synthetic vitamin K, a substance alleged by some to be linked to liver problems and which is progressively being removed from better quality products.


Overall, this product appears to be reasonably good quality. We would prefer a higher meat content, however, and users might consider supplementing the diet with meat (or fish).
