Pros: First and fifth ingredients are named meat products. Uses good quality grains with few filler ingredients.
Cons: Minimum sufficient meat content.

The first ingredient in the food is a named meat product, as is the fifth (although the latter is meat inclusive of water content, and likely to be present in very small quantity). There is a further meat ingredient 9th on the ingredient list, but this is too far down to make up a substantial portion of the food.

The main grains in the food are barley, oatmeal and rice, which are all decent quality. Rice bran is the 7th ingredient and we consider this to be filler. We appreciate the use of whole eggs in the food.

Overall this looks to be a good food, and with a higher meat content would have received a five star rating. Rice bran is the sole filler ingredient in the food, and this does not occur until 7th on the ingredient list, making it a minor portion of the food. The remaining ingredients are all good quality. Whole fruits and vegetables are included, though we would prefer to see these in greater quantities (replacing some grains) and would prefer the use of fresh vegetables than dried. We note that the food is quite high in fat and ash.
