Cons: Insufficient meat content, use of low quality grains and fat.

The first ingredient in the food is a named meat product, but since this is salmon inclusive of its water content (about 80%) and this ingredient will weigh only about 20% of its wet weight once water is removed (as it must be to make kibble) it is unlikely that this is the true first ingredient in the food. There are two further meat products in the food, both fish meal 6th and 7th on the ingredient list but this is too low to make up a substantive portion of the food.

The next ingredient is a low quality grain and this makes up the major portion of the food. Brewers rice is a low quality grain and by-product. Canola is a low quality source of linoleic acid, but oatmeal is a decent quality grain.

Beef tallow is a very low quality fat obtained from the tissue of cattle in the commercial process of rendering.
