Pros: First two ingredients are named meat products, high meat content, grainless, good quality ingredients throughout

The first two ingredients of this food are named meat products, the second of which is in meal form. The first ingredient is meat inclusive of water content (about 80%) and once that is removed it is likely that this ingredient would be more accurately placed somewhat further down the ingredient list (ingredients are listed in order of weight). However, since it is followed by a meat meal ingredient ahead of the carbohydrate content and thereafter by a further meat meal and fresh meat ingredinet, we can have high confidence in the level of meat content of the food. There are further meat (fish) ingredients 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th on the ingredient list which, although not contributing significantly to the overall meat content, further increases our confidence in the food, as does the macronutrient breakdown.

The food uses salmon oil rather than fat, providing a good source of omega 3 and 6 OFAs.

There are no grains in this food. Potato is the starch content holding it together. There is a range of fruits/vegetables in the food, 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.

The protein and calcium content of this food is quite high for puppies and may be more suitable for adult dogs, particularly in the case of large breeds.
