Pros: First two ingredients are named meat products, grainless, primarily good quality ingredients

The first two ingredients in this food are named meat products. The first of these is meat (fish) inclusive of water content (about 80%). Once the water is removed as it must be to create a dry product, this ingredients will weigh around 20% of its wet weight. It is thus unlikely that it is truely the first ingredient, but would be more accurately placed further down the ingredient list. Since it is followed by a meat meal ingredient, however, we retain some confidence in the overall meat content of the food. There are further meat ingredients 6th and 9th on the ingredient list, but this is too far down to make up a substantial portion of the food.

Potatoes are the primary carbohydrate and starch source, with further fruits and vegetables amongst the minor ingredients. Pea flour does not appear quite such a good ingredient and is primarily fiber. Tomato pomace and pea fiber are fiber sources we consider primarily filler. This food uses canola oil as the primary fat source, which although not the highest quality oil is supported by salmon oil for additional omega 3 & 6 OFAs. The food contains a useful range of probiotics.

Overall, this appears a good quality product, with a reasonable amount of meat included. We are pleased to see another grainless product on the market, offering a more natural diet for canines.
