Authority Adult Chunk & Real Lamb

As with all of Authority’s wet and dry dog foods, they start out great with 2 meat ingredients and then as if they ran out of money they hit rock bottom. The 2 wheat and 2 of the rice ingredients are of the lowest quality. They just can’t stay away from corn, using a low grade corn oil. On top of that they use low quality beef tallow.  They also split ingredients twice in this product.
