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

The first ingredient in this food is a named meat product inclusive of water content. Once that is removed as it must be to create a dehydrated product, the ingredient will weigh around 20% of its wet weight and be more accurately place much further down the ingredient list. This is followed by a second named meat product, this time in meal form, which is most likely the true first ingredient in the food. These are the only meat ingredients in the food.


There are two grains amongst the top level ingredients, both of which are decent quality (oatmeal & barley). The protein content is boosted by potato protein, but this is low quality protein compared to meat and would suggest a very average meat content (which users may address by the addition of real meat to the diet).


There is a range of fruits and vegetables included, though we consider tomato pomace to be filler. There is also a good range of probiotics.


Overall, this looks to be a reasonable quality product, but is likely to be rather light in meat content.
