Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product.
Cons: Insufficient meat product, use of controversial filler.

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

The second ingredient in the food is brown rice and the fourth is oats. Both are decent quality grains. We consider rice bran (a fragment) to be filler.

Beet pulp is filler and a controversial ingredient 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 especially so high on the ingredient list. There are less controversial products around if additional fibre is required.
