Pros: Third ingredient is a named meat product.
Cons: Insufficient meat product in the food. Use of low quality grains.

The first two ingredients in the food are grains. Brewers rice is the main grain in the food and is a by-product of the alcohol industry for which the AAFCO definition is “the dried extracted residue of rice resulting from the manufacture of wort (liquid portion of malted grain) or beer and may contain pulverized dried spent hops in an amount not to exceed 3 percent.”
Rice, the second ingredient, is a decent grain.


The third ingredient is a named meat product, as is the 7th (but so far down the ingredient list, it is unlikely that there is a great deal of lamb meal in the food).


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.
