Pros: First and third ingredients are named meat products, grainfree, high apparent meat content
Cons:

The first ingredient in this food is a named meat product, in meal form. There is a second meat ingredient third on the ingredient list, and fresh fish products further down the ingredient list. These are, however, inclusive of water content. Once this is removed, as it must be to create a dry food product, the ingredients will weigh around 20% of their wet weight, and may be more accurately placed further down the ingredient list than indicated. With a meat product in meal form heading the ingredient list (i.e. already dehydrated) we can continue to have some confidence in the meat content of the food.


The main source of starch is sweet potatoes, with a range of other fruits and vegetables amongst the minor ingredients. We appreciate the use of whole eggs in the food, and the range of probiotics.


Overall, this appears to be a good quality product with no low quality ingredients. It is an entirely grain free product: 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.
