Pros: First two ingredients are named meat products, uses good quality ingredients.
Cons: Minimum acceptable meat content.

The first two ingredients are named meat products. The first is lamb inclusive of its water content (about 80%) and once that is removed it is likely that this ingredient would be more accurately placed somewhat further down the ingredient list (ingredients are listed in order of weight). Note that this is an example of the practice of “splitting” (see note on main page), but since it is followed by the meal form, in this case serves to increase our level of confidence in the amount of meat product in the food since the split ingredients still rank ahead of the first grain by weight.

The primary grains in the food are oatmeal, rice and millet. Oatmeal is a good source of carbohydrate energy and B vitamins. Rice is also a good quality grain and source of carbohydrates, protein and fibre. Millet is a good quality grain, easily digested and non-allergenic. Barley is a further good quality, but the food is beginning to look rather grain-heavy at this point.

We appreciate seeing the inclusion of some fruits and vegetables in the food, but would prefer to see the use of whole eggs rather than egg product in the food.
