Pros:
Cons: Use of low quality meat and fat ingredients of unidentifiable origin, carcinogenic preservative, low quality grain fragments

The main ingredient in this food is corn. Corn is difficult for dogs to digest and the cause of many allergy problems. Moreover, the main ingredients should not be grains but meat. We firmly believe that dog food should be based on meat rather than cereals.


Meat and bone meal is a low quality meat product of unidentifiable origin. This ingredient may contain anything. It’s definition is “the rendered product from mammal tissues, including bone, exclusive of blood, hair, hoof, horn, hide trimmings, manure, stomach and rumen contents, except in such amounts as may occur unavoidably in good processing practices.”


Soybean meal is a low quality source of additional protein. Soy is another very common cause of allergy problems for dogs, believed by some to outstrip even wheat as the number one cause of allergies. Wheat is also present in the food as a grain fragment.


“Animal” fat is an ingredient of unspecified origin, and an ingredient we prefer never to see in dog food as it may contain anything. Such unspecified ingredients are invariably very low quality. This ingredient has been preserved with chemicals known to be carcinogenic.
