Pros: First four ingredients are named meat products, grainless, quality ingredients throughout
Cons:

The first four ingredients in this food are all named meat products. The first of these is meat inclusive of water content (about 80%) and once that is removed it is likely that these ingredients would be more accurately placed somewhat further down the ingredient list (ingredients are listed in order of weight). However, since this is followed by three meat meal ingredients, we can have fairly high confidence in the level of meat content of the food.


This is an entirely grainless dog food. The major carbohydrate source is pea starch, which is primarily a thickener, and split peas which are a good source of vegetable protein. The food contains whole eggs, a good range of probiotics and fruits/vegetable ingredients.


This food is excellent in containing no grains. 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. This is a more natural food concept and combined with a complete lack of any low quality or controversial ingredients is the reason this food is placed in a class above the more conventional form dry dog foods.


The only caution we would make on this food is that the high protein content may make it suitable for adult dogs only, particularly in the case of large breeds.
