Pros: Second ingredient is a named meat product.
Cons: Inadequate meat product in the food.

There is simply an inadequate amount of meat product in this food. Reducing calories does not need to mean reducing meat content (meat is the quality nutrition in a dog food). Rice is not only the top ingredient in the food, there are two rice products and we have no doubt that they outweigh the meat product in this food by a substantial margin.


The food contains no fillers or other controversial ingredients. Simply not an adequate amount of meat.
