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

The first ingredient in this food is a named meat ingredient, in meal form. Unfortunately, the next three ingredients are grains.


Rice is a good 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. Corn is also a problematic grain that is difficult for dogs to digest and thought to be the cause of a great many allergy and yeast infection problems. We prefer not to see this used in dog food. Corn appears a second time in the ingredient list, this time as gluten meal for which the AAFCO definition is "the dried residue from corn after the removal of the larger part of the starch and germ, and the separation of the bran by the process employed in the wet milling manufacture of corn starch or syrup, or by enzymatic treatment of the endosperm". In plain English, that which remains after all the nutritious bits have been removed. Rice bran is also filler.
