Pros: Second ingredient is a named meat product.
Cons: Insufficient meat content, use of low quality grains, fillers and soy.

The primary ingredient in this food is rice. Rice is a good quality grain, but it is still a grain and dog food should be based on meat.

The second ingredient is a named meat product in meal form. There is a further meat product in the food, Fish meal 6th on the ingredient list. We note that the manufacturer does not claim to use ethoxyquin-free sources (ethoxyquin is a chemical preservative commonly added to fish destined for meal, and is believed to be carcinogenic).

The third ingredient is a grain fragment - maize flour. Maize (corn) is a problematic ingredient in dog food, difficult to digest and the cause of many allergy problems. We prefer not to see it used in dog food at all, let alone as a major portion of the food

Soy is a poor quality source of protein in dog food, and a common cause of allergy problems. Some believe that it is the number 1 cause of food allergies in dogs (outstripping even wheat).
