Pros: Excellent overall meat content, uses good quality ingredients throughout.
Cons:

The first, second, eighth and ninth ingredients in the food are all named meat products, all in meal form. There is a further (fresh) meat ingredient 7th on the ingredient list, though this is too far down to make up a substantive portion of the food particularly once water content is removed from the ingredient.


The main grain in the food is rice (two forms). These are whole grains that are low-allergenic and a good quality source of carbohydrates and additional protein. There are no further grains in the food. Flaxseed is a good quality source of Omega 6 and Omega 3 essential fatty acids as is sunflower oil. There is a good range of probiotics in the food.


This is an excellent looking food with very good meat content. The only grain contained in the food is rice, and there are no grain fragments or other fillers. It is one of the very few senior foods on the market that reduces fat without sacrificing the meat content and nutritional adequacy of the food. Great to see.
