Pros: First and third ingredients are named meat products, generally good quality ingredients
Cons: Insufficient meat content

The first ingredient of this food is a named meat product. This is inclusive of water content (about 80%). Once that is removed, as it must be to create a dehydrated product, the ingredient will weigh around 20% of the wet weight. It is thus likely that in dry form this ingredient does not make up 26% of the food as suggested, but somewhere in the region of 5-6%. There is a second meat ingredient, this time in dry (meal) form third on the ingredient list and comprising at least 15% of the dry weight of the food. The total meat content is thus probably a little over 20%. This is greater than some products on the market, but still not ideal.


The major ingredient in this food is rice; with oats as a secondary grain. Although more plentiful than we'd ideally like, both are good quality grains. We have no particular concerns with remaining minority ingredients.


Overall, this product appears to use good quality ingredients. Our sole concern arises from the limited meat content, which users could address by adding real meat to the diet.
