Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product
Cons: Insufficient meat content, mixed quality grains

The first ingredient in this food is a named meat product, in meal form. It is the sole meat product in the food, and with four grains ahead of the fat content, gives us little confidence in the meat content of this product.


The grains in the food are of mixed quality. Rice and oats are good quality grains, but rice bran is a grain fragment we consider primarily filler.


Overall, our concern with this product is primarily in its limited meat content, and users may consider supplementing the diet with meat. We note that this product includes synthetic vitamin K, a substance linked to liver problems and that is progressively being removed from better quality dog food products.
