Pros: First and fifth ingredients are named meat products.
Cons: Minimum acceptable meat content, use of grain fragments, fat of unidentifiable origin.

The first and fifth ingredients in the food are named meat products in meal form. The next three ingredients are all forms of rice. This is an example of the practice known as “splitting” and it is likely that the combined rice products outweigh the lamb as the main ingredient in the food. Rice flour and rice bran are both grain fragments, the former being low quality filler.


The fat ingredient in the food is an unspecified product. We prefer not to see the use of ingredients for which source cannot be identified, and note that low cost ingredients like this are usually very low quality.


We would prefer to see the use of whole eggs rather than dried egg product in the food.
