This dog food starts out with 3 quality ingredients then quickly nose dives to the bottom of the barrel with the next 4 ingredients. Besides having low quality ingredients it is very grain heavy.  Corn Gluten Meal is one of the lowest grade ingredients that can be put in a dog food. We do not recommend this dog food.

Chicken meal is an excellent ingredient in a dog’s food.

Brown rice is a very high grade of grain.
