Instinct Salmon Meal

This is a grain free dog food without any potatoes and is full of quality ingredients. This food contains a lot of fish meal, when we contacted Natures Variety about the use of ethoxyquin their answer was “Our fish is frozen at sea to prevent degradation and immediately processed into a fish meal once it reaches the manufacturing facility.”   The only questionably ingredient is tomato pomace. This is an outstanding dog food and you can feel very confident about feeding this product. Some believe the ingredients before the first fat or oil are the main ingredients.
