Pros: First and third ingredients are named meat products, uses good quality ingredients throughout.
Cons:

The first and third ingredients are both named meat products, in meal form, giving us some confidence in the meat content of the food. There is a third meat meal ingredient (chicken liver meal) 7th on the ingredient list.


The main grain is brown rice, which is a good quality grain. It is a concern to see chicken fat as the fourth ingredient: research at Purdue University has identified fat in the top four ingredients of a dry food as a factor increasing the risk of bloat in large breed dogs (smaller breeds are untested).


We appreciate the use of whole eggs in this food, and the inclusion of a range of probiotics. Overall, this looks to be a good quality product, for which a 5-star rating was debated - it would be amongst the highest rated in the 4 star category.
