Pros: Organic ingredients.
Cons: Zero meat content, very low protein.

This is a vegetarian dog food. Whilst we are appreciative of organic ingredients, we firmly believe that the appropriate food for a carnivorous mammal is meat. Dogs may be omnivorous enough to survive on plant material, but survive is a very different proposition to thrive. We would therefore never recommend that anyone choose a vegetarian dog food for any other reason than owning one of the few individuals who cannot tolerate meat diets for medical reasons. Owners own preferences toward vegetarian diets should be put aside (or a non-carnivorous pet is a better choice).


Insofar as it is a meat-less diet, the quality of this product appears to be reasonably high. The manufacturer does not explicitly state that the grains, fruit and vegetables used in the food are whole (which we would prefer) - but neither are they recognisably fractions or offcuts. The food contains a good range of fruits and vegetables. The sole non-plant source of protein is eggs.


We do note that the crude protein level of this food is below the AAFCO minimum for adult maintenance. It would not be suitable for puppies.
