Pros: First two ingredients are named meat products, uses good quality ingredients, semi-allergy formula.
Cons: Some filler.

The first and second ingredients in the food are named meat products. The first of these is meat inclusive of water content (about 80%) and once that is removed it is likely that this ingredient would be more accurately placed somewhat further down the ingredient list (ingredients are listed in order of weight). However, since it is followed by a meat meal ingredient, we can have confidence in the level of meat content of the food. There are further meat meal ingredients 9th and 15th on the ingredient list, though these are too far down to make up a substantive portion of the food.


The carbohydrate content of the food comes from sweet potatoes and grains meaning that the food is relatively low in grain content. The grains used are rice, barley and oatmeal, all of which are good quality low-allergenic grains that provide additional carbohydrates and protein to the food. We appreciate the use of whole eggs and a range of fruits and vegetables in the food, as well as a good range of probiotics. Tomato pomace and oat hulls are fillers, but these are fortunately a very small proportion of the food.


Fromms Four Star formulas are semi-allergy foods with low grain content.
