Pros: Three of the first four ingredients are named meat products, grainfree
Cons:

The first two ingredients in this food are named meat products, as is the fourth. The latter two of these are meat meal ingredients. The first is, however, inclusive of water content. Once this is removed, as it must be to create a dry food product, the ingredient will weigh around 20% of its wet weight, and may be more accurately placed further down the ingredient list than indicated. In this case, a meat product in meal form would still heading the ingredient list (i.e. already dehydrated) which allows us to continue to have confidence in the meat content of the food. We note, however, that the main meat ingredients are likely to be chicken and turkey, and not buffalo as might be assumed from the product title.


The main source of starch is potatoes, with a range of other fruits and vegetables amongst the minor ingredients. The food includes canola oil rather than fat. Whilst this is beneficial, canola is not believed by all to be high quality.


Overall, this appears to be a good quality product with no low quality ingredients. It is an entirely grain free product: Grains are not a natural part of a canine diet and it is pleasing to see dog foods on the market that exclude grains completely from the diet.
