Pros: First and second ingredients are named meat products, use of organic ingredients.
Cons: Minimum acceptable meat content.

The first two ingredients in the food are named meat products. The first is chicken inclusive of its water content, and once this is removed - as it must be to make a dry food - the ingredient will end up weighing around 20% of its original weight. It is thus likely to be more accurately placed much further down the ingredient list. Since it is followed immediately by a named meat meal, however, our confidence in the amount of meat in the food is not affected.

There is a further named meat meal ingredient 6th on the ingredient list, but this is unlikely to significantly increase the meat content of the food.

The next three ingredients are all grains. These are organic products, which is appreciated. However, one true meat product and three grains ahead of the fat content makes the food appear to be grain-heavy.

There are a range of fruits and vegetables that are appreciated, as is the range of probiotics.
