Pros: First two ingredients are named meat products, uses good quality ingredients throughout.
Cons:

The first two ingredients are named meat products. The first is chicken inclusive of its water content (about 80%) and once that is removed it is likely that this ingredient would be more accurately placed somewhat further down the ingredient list (ingredients are listed in order of weight). Note that this is an example of the practice of “splitting” (see note on main page), but since it is followed by the meal form, in this case serves to increase our level of confidence in the amount of meat product in the food since the split ingredients still rank ahead of the first grain by weight. There is a further meat meal ingredient (turkey) 6th on the ingredient list.


The primary grains in the food are rice and barley. Rice is also a good quality grain and source of carbohydrates, protein and fibre. Barley is a further good quality, and oatmeal is a good source of carbohydrate energy and B vitamins.


We appreciate seeing the inclusion of some fruits and vegetables in the food, but would prefer to see the use of whole eggs rather than egg product in the food.


Overall, this food contains a good amount of meat product and good quality ingredients throughout. It is the best formula within this range and rates well within this class.
