Pros:
Cons: Insufficient meat products, use of low quality grains and soy.

The primary ingredient is maize (corn). Dog foods should be based on meat, not on grains. Maize is a problematic ingredient in dog food, difficult to digest and the cause of many allergy problems. We prefer not to see it used in dog food at all, let alone as the major portion of the food


The second ingredient is a meat product, but it is one of unidentifiable origin and quality. If origin cannot be determined, then neither can quality. Unidentified ingredients are usually very low quality. There is a further meat product in the food, Fish meal 5th on the ingredient list. We note that the manufacturer does not claim to use ethoxyquin-free sources (ethoxyquin is a chemical preservative commonly added to fish destined for meal, and is believed to be carcinogenic).


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).


We do not appreciate the addition of glucose to dog food, and would prefer to see the use of whole eggs rather than egg product. Yeast is likely to be a further problematic ingredient for allergy sufferers.
