Pros: First two ingredients are named meat products, uses primarily good quality whole ingredients.
Cons:

The first two ingredients of this food are named meat products, both in meal form. There is a further meat meal ingredient (fish) 10th on the ingredient list, but this is too far down to make up a substantive portion 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).


The next two ingredients in the food are both rice. Rice, in whole form, is a high quality source of carbohydrates and additional protein. This is an example of splitting and we note that there are two further grain products in the food. These are barley and oats both good quality whole grains. However, this suggests that the food is somewhat heavier in grains than the two meat meal ingredients heading the ingredient list would first make things appear and is probably one of the lowest in this class.


Tomato pomace is filler, but we appreciate the use of whole eggs and kelp in the food. Sunflower oil is a good source of linoleic acid. There is a good range of probiotics in the food.
