Pros: First four ingredients are named meat products, uses good quality ingredients throughout.
Cons:

The first four ingredients in this food are all named meat products. The first two of these are meat inclusive of water content (about 80%) and once that is removed it is likely that these ingredients would be more accurately placed somewhat further down the ingredient list (ingredients are listed in order of weight). However, since they are followed by two meat meal ingredients, we can have very high confidence in the level of meat content of the food. There are further meat ingredients 7th and 11th on the list. The latter of these this is too far down to make up a substantive portion of the food. That is fish meal, a source of Omega 6 and Omega 3 essential fatty acids.


The main grains are rice and barley. Both are whole grains and good quality sources of carbohydrates and additional protein. Oatmeal is a further good quality grain in the food. The food contains a range of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as whole eggs. Flaxseed is a good quality source of Omega 6 and Omega 3 essential fatty acids, and the food contains a range of probiotics.


Overall, this is a very good quality food with a good amount of meat and that uses high quality ingredients throughout. The food contains no fillers, no grain fragments, or other nasties that commonly cause problems for dogs.
