Pros:
Cons: Insufficient meat content, use of low quality grains and filler.

The first grain in the food is Brewers rice - a low quality grain and by-product.


This is followed by a grain fragment (rice bran) which is filler. There are two further rice fragments in the food, including gluten which is likely to be similar to corn gluten. AAFCO define this as "the dried residue from corn after the removal of the larger part of the starch and germ, and the separation of the bran by the process employed in the wet milling manufacture of corn starch or syrup, or by enzymatic treatment of the endosperm".


The sole meat ingredient does not occur until third on the ingredient list. This is a decent quality meat meal, but this is too low to make up an adequate proportion of the food.
