Pros: Third ingredient is a named meat product.
Cons: insufficient meat products, use of low quality fillers, fat of unidentifiable origin.

The primary ingredient in this food is rice. Rice is a decent grain, however we prefer to see food made for dogs to be based on meat. The second ingredient is also a grain and one that is difficult to digest.


A named meat product is the third ingredient in the food. We would prefer to see it as the number one ingredient (ingredients are listed in order of weight). Ground oats is a decent grain, but we consider rice bran to be filler, as is chicory pulp.


Poultry fat is an ingredient of unidentified origin for which it is impossible to determine source or quality. Unidentified ingredients are usually very low quality. AAFCO define this as obtained from the tissues of poultry in the commercial processes of rendering or extracting. It consists predominantly of glyceride esters of fatty acids and contains no additions of free fatty acids. If an antioxidant is used, the common name or names must be indicated, followed by the words "used as a preservative"


Note that this food uses citric acid as a preservative and should not be premoistened prior to feeding (a bloat risk factor in large breed dogs).
