Pros: First ingredient is a named meat product, uses high quality ingredients, no fillers
Cons: Minimum acceptable meat content.

The first ingredient in this food is a named meat product in meal form. This is the sole meat ingredient in the food.

The second and third ingredients are grains both rice and whole grain. This is decent quality. The remaining ingredients are oil and vitamins/minerals

Overall this food is a good quality product and contains good quality ingredients without any harmful nasties. It is a food aimed at dogs who suffer from allergies with only three main ingredients. This enables us to be reasonably confident that there is a minimum of 30% meat content in the food, since the meat meal ingredient is listed first of the three ingredients that make up the vast bulk of the food. This is enough for us to give this food a four star rating, but a higher meat content would be required to rate the food more highly.

This food would be highly suitable for individuals that suffer from allergies, sensitive stomachs, or as part of a rotation with other foods that contain different meat protein sources and a range of fruits/vegetables.
