Pros: First two ingredients are named meat products, high meat content, grainless, quality ingredients throughout.

The first two ingredients are named meat products. The first 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 and has a strong macronutrient breakdown, we can have confidence in the level of meat content of the food. There are a further three meat ingredients 6th - 8th on the ingredient list, but this starts to be too far down to make a substantial contribution to the overall meat content of the food.

This is an entirely grainless dog food. The major carbohydrate source is potatoes, which are also a good source of B vitamins and other minerals. There is a good range of fruits/vegetables in the food, whole eggs and a good range of probiotics. The product does not contain animal fat, but instead sunflower and herring oils which are excellent sources of Omega 3/6 EFAs.

This food is outstanding in that it contains no grains whatsoever. Grains are not a natural part of a canine diet and it is pleasing to see dog foods on the market that exclude grains completely from the diet. This is a far more natural food concept and combined with a complete lack of any low quality or controversial ingredients is the reason this food is placed in a class above the more conventional form dry dog foods.

The only caution we would make on this food is that the high protein and calcium content may make it suitable for adult dogs only, particularly in the case of large breeds.
