Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product.
Cons: Insufficient meat content.

The first ingredient in this food is a named meat product. It is kangaroo, inclusive of its water content. Once this is removed, as it must be to produce a dry food, the ingredient will be left weighing around 20% of its wet weight. It is thus unlikely that this is the true first ingredient in the food and would likely be more accurately placed further down the ingredient list. This is the sole meat product in the food.

The next two ingredients are grains. Rice and sorghum are reasonable grains, but these are the true main ingredients of the food. We believe that dog foods should be based on meat, not grains, and this food looks to be rather grain heavy.

We appreciate the inclusion of some fruit matter in the food, and some probiotics.

Overall, this looks to be a good quality product and it contains no low quality ingredients. It would present a useful "unique" option for those looking for an alternative for allergy sufferers (and whose dogs do not have problems with rice), but the low apparent meat content is of some concern.
