Pros: This food uses naturally occurring preservatives.
Cons: Lack of quality meat ingredients is the main reason for the low assessment given to this food.

There is only one named meat source in the top five ingredients (and in the food overall), and the primary ingredient is a grain (rice). Chicken fat is high on the ingredient list (4th), a factor which research at Purdue University has shown to increase the risk of bloat in large breed dogs. Dried egg product is the 6th ingredient, but we would prefer to see the use of whole eggs.
