Cons: Inadequate meat content, use of low quality grains and soy.

The primary ingredient, making up a whopping 50% of this food, is maize (corn). Dog foods should be based on meat, not on grains. Maize 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 the major portion of the food.

Fish meal is the 2nd ingredient and the sole meat product in the food. It makes up only 16% of the food. 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).

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).
