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

The first ingredient in the food is a named meat product in meal form. This is the sole meat product in the food and insufficient to give us confidence that the food contains adequate meat.


The next two ingredients are grains, both of decent quality.


Beet pulp is a low quality ingredient and filler. It is a by-product, being dried residue from sugar beets which has been cleaned and extracted in the process of manufacturing sugar. It is a controversial ingredient in dog food, claimed by some manufacturers to be a good source of fibre, and derided by others as an ingredient added to slow down the transition of rancid animal fats and causing stress to kidney and liver in the process. We note that beet pulp is an ingredient that commonly causes problems for dogs, including allergies and ear infections, and prefer not to see it used in dog food. There are less controversial products around if additional fibre is required. The fat content of the food comes from vegetable and fish oils.
