Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product.
Cons: Insufficient meat products in the food, use of controversial ingredients, fat in the top four ingredients is a bloat risk factor for large breed dogs.

The first ingredient in the food is a named meat product, as is the sixth. We note however that the second and third ingredients are both rice, and combined probably constitute the true first ingredient in the food (see explanation of “splitting” on main page).

It is a concern to see chicken fat as the fourth ingredient. Research at Purdue University has identified a fat in the top four ingredients of a dry dog food as a factor that increases the risk of bloat in large breed dogs. Smaller breeds are untested.

Rice bran is a grain fragment and filler. We also note the use of Avocado oil as a controversial ingredient: avocados are toxic to dogs. The toxic dose is unknown.
