Pros: First four ingredients are named meat products, grainless, uses high quality ingredients throughout.
Cons: Not suitable for puppies.

The first four ingredients in this food are all named meat products. The first two are meat inclusive of water content (about 80%) and once that is removed it is likely that these ingredients would be more accurately placed somewhat further down the ingredient list (ingredients are listed in order of weight). However, since it is followed by two meat meal ingredients, we can have very high confidence in the level of meat content of the food.

The food replaces standard fat content with Herring Oil, which is an excellent source of Omerga 3/6 Essential Fatty Acids. It is wonderful to see a food that reduces fat without taking all the nutritious ingredients out.

This is an entirely grainless dog food. The major carbohydrate source is potatoes, which are also a good source of B vitamins and other minerals. There is a good range of fruits/vegetables in the food, whole eggs and a good range of probiotics.

This food is outstanding in that it contains no grains whatsoever. Grains are not a natural part of a canine diet and it is pleasing to see dog foods on the market that exclude grains completely from the diet. This is a far more natural food concept and combined with a complete lack of any low quality or controversial ingredients is the reason this food is placed in a class above the more conventional form dry dog foods.

The only caution we would make on this food is that the high protein content makes it suitable for adult dogs only, particularly in the case of large breeds.
