Pros: Three meat products in first five ingredients, low level of grain, uses good quality ingredients throughout.

The first, second, fifth and seventh ingredients in the food are all named meat products, and all in meal form. There is a further (fresh) meat ingredient 11th on the ingredient list, though this is too far down to make up a substantive portion of the food.

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.
