Authority Adult Weight Management with Real Lamb

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 Oil is one of the lowest grade ingredients that can be put in a dog food and is used in soap, salve, paint and rust proofing for metal surfaces. We do not recommend this dog food.
