Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product, uses good quality ingredients throughout.
Cons: Limited confidence in meat content.

The first ingredient in the food is a named meat product, in meal form. The second is brown rice, a decent quality grain.

These are the only two ingredients ahead of the main fat content (Canola oil), which gives us some level of confidence that there is a decent amount of meat product in the food, despite this being the sole meat meal ingredient. We cannot have the same level of confidence, however, as we have with the original Canidae formula.

Lamb is also included in non-meal form 7th on the ingredient list, but this is so far down for a non-dry ingredient as to be near insignificant in respect of contribution to the meat content.

The food contains a good range of probiotics.
