Pros: First three ingredients are named meat products, uses good quality ingredients throughout

The first three ingredients of this food are named meat products. The first two of these are meat inclusive of its water content (about 80%) and once that is removed, as it must be to create a dehydrated product, it is likely that the ingredient would be more accurately placed somewhat further down the ingredient list (ingredients are listed in order of weight). However, that still leaves a meat meal ingredient at the head of the ingredient list which gives us confidence that there is an adequate amount of meat in the food. There is a further meat ingredient 8th on the ingredient list, but this is too far down to make up a substantial portion of the food.

The major grains in the food are barley and rice. Barley is a good quality grain and carbohydrate source. Rice is a low-allergenic grain that is a good source of carbohydrates and additional protein.

The inclusion of a range of fruits and vegetables is appreciated, as are the probiotics.
