Pros: The food does not contain fillers, and uses naturally occurring preservatives.
Cons: Lack of quality meat ingredients is the main reason for the low assessment given to this food.

There is only one named meat source in the top five ingredients (and in the food overall), and the primary ingredient is a grain (rice). The food does not contain fillers, and uses naturally occurring preservatives, but we cannot be confident that it contains adequate meat ingredients. The long list of supplements added does nothing to increase our confidence in this regard.


Lack of quality meat ingredients is the main reason for the low assessment given to this food.
