Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product.
Cons: Insufficient meat content, use of mixed quality grains, controversial filler.

The first ingredient in the food is a named meat product, in meal form. It is the sole meat product in the food.


The next three ingredients are all grains, which diminishes our confidence that this food contains an adequate amount of meat. Rice and barley are decent quality grains, but corn is problematic. Corn 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.


Beet pulp is a filler and a controversial ingredient it is a by-product, being dried residue from sugar beets which has been cleaned and extracted in the process of manufacturing sugar. It is a controversial ingredient in dog food, claimed by some manufacturers to be a good source of fibre, and derided by others as an ingredient added to slow down the transition of rancid animal fats and causing stress to kidney and liver in the process. We note that beet pulp is an ingredient that commonly causes problems for dogs, including allergies and ear infections, and prefer not to see it used in dog food. There are less controversial products around if additional fibre is required.
