Pros: First two ingredients are named meat products, good quality ingredients
Cons: Insufficient meat content

The first two ingredients of this food are named meat products. These are inclusive of water content (about 80%). Once that is removed, as it must be to create a dehydrated product, the ingredients will weigh around 20% of their wet weight. It is thus likely that these dry ingredients may be more accurately placed much further down the ingredient list than the wet form (ingredients are listed in order of weight). The sole meat meal ingredient in this food does not appear until 7th on the ingredient list, making it appear unlikely that the food contains a great deal of meat.

The major ingredients of this food are likely to be grain. There are three grains and potato ahead of the first and only meat meal ingredient, making it likely that this food contains a greater amount of grain than meat (note this includes two forms of rice). The grains are, at least, good quality whole grains - but dog food should be based on meat not on grain.

Pea fiber is filler, though this is a minor ingredient in the food. There is a range of oils high in omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, as well as some amount of fruits/vegetables and egg. We appreciate the range of probiotics.

Overall, this food appears to be of good quality and uses decent ingredients. It would appear to be rather grain heavy, however, and animals may benefit from the addition of real meat to the diet.
