Pros:
Cons: Byproducts, low quality ingredients throughout, undisclosed preservative

The first ingredient in this food is rice. Rice is a decent quality grain, but it is still a grain which is not a natural foodstuff for canines. Dog food products should be based on meat rather than grain. The second ingredient is also grain.


The meat related ingredients in this food are byproducts. It is impossible to ascertain the quality of by-products and these are usually products that are of such low quality as to be rejected for use in the human food chain, or else are those parts that have so little value that they cannot be used elsewhere in either the human or pet food industries. The AAFCO definition of Chicken by-product meal is ďa meal consisting of the ground, rendered, clean parts of the carcass of slaughtered chicken, such as necks, feet, undeveloped eggs and intestines, exclusive of feathers, except in such amounts as might occur unavoidable in good processing practice. Turkey byproducts are the same low quality leftovers from the carcasses of turkey.


Vegetable fibre is the byproducts of vegetables - peelings, culls and other rejects of human food production. No information is given about preservatives, which may include chemicals such as Ethoxyquin, BHA or BHT all of which are allowed in dog food products but are banned or heavily regulated in human food production due to the belief that they are carcinogenic.
