Pure Vita Duck and Oatmeal

We are puzzled why potato protein and natural vegan flavors are this high on the ingredient list for this dog food. Good protein mostly comes from a meat source. If you are going to add a artificial flavor, why not have it be a duck flavor.  Tomato pomace is a filler, but it does serve a purpose with high fiber. Overall this is a decent dog food.

Duck is a great meat source for dogs and they seem to love the taste of duck.

Duck meal is another good meat source.

Oatmeal has been linked to the control of heart disease in humans. We feel this is as good a non meat ingredient that can be found in a dog food.

Barley is a medium quality grain.

Potato protein really does not offer anything to a dog in the way of a nutrient source.
