Pros:
Cons: Meat product of unidentifiable origin, low quality grains, soy.

The primary grains in the food are corn and wheat. Corn is a problematic grain that is difficult for dogs to digest and thought to be the cause of a great many allergy and yeast infection problems. We prefer not to see this used in dog food. The use of wheat is a significant negative: wheat is believed to be the number one cause of allergy problems in dog food. This is another ingredient we prefer not to see used at all in dog food


The second ingredient is a meat product of unidentifiable origin. It is a meal made from the by-products of carcasses of a variety of animals, but the origin is unidentifiable. We recommend avoiding any pet food using such ingredients.


Soy is a poor quality source of protein in dog food, and a common cause of allergy problems. Some believe that it is the number 1 cause of food allergies in dogs (outstripping even wheat).


Digest is further low quality ingredient, being: "dried material resulting from chemical and/or enzymatic hydrolysis of clean and undecomposed animal tissue. The animal tissue used shall be exclusive of hair, horns, teeth, hooves and feathers, except in such trace amounts as might occur unavoidably in good factory practice and shall be suitable for animal feed. If it bears a name descriptive of its kind or flavor(s), it must correspond thereto".
