Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product.
Cons: Insufficient meat product, fat of unidentifiable origin, use of fillers

The first ingredient is a named meat product. It is the sole meat product in the food.


The next two ingredients are decent quality grains. Sorghum is a lower quality grain, a carbohydrate source low in digestibility. We consider it to be filler, as are rice protein and tomato pomace. Linseed meal/flaxseed are decent quality ingredients.


Poultry fat is an ingredient of unidentified origin for which it is impossible to determine source or quality. Unidentified ingredients are usually very low quality. AAFCO define this as obtained from the tissues of poultry in the commercial processes of rendering or extracting. It consists predominantly of glyceride esters of fatty acids and contains no additions of free fatty acids. If an antioxidant is used, the common name or names must be indicated, followed by the words "used as a preservative"
