Authority Puppy Chicken
The first 2 ingredients in this dog food are meat, which is great. Then they overwhelm this food with low grade corn. Puppies need ingredients that their bodies can digest and use. This is not the corn you see in your local grocery stores. There are over 18 types of corn grown in the USA. It is also very light on Vitamins and minerals. This is a very poor choice of food for your puppy.
