Chicken Meal is the first ingredient and is a named meat ingredient. A dog’s diet needs to based on the fact that dogs need meat and protein that derives from meat.

Rice is the second and third ingredient. Rice is a decent quality ingredient and adds additional proteins and carbohydrates to the recipe.

Chicken Fat is going to be the main source of fat. It’s safe to say that the ingredients before this ingredient are going to make up the majority of the dog food. This is a decent quality ingredient. You want to stay away from unidentified fat sources such as, “Animal Fat”

    I gave up on all the other food brands and stick to this one because a) my yorkies will actually eat it without any special additives or wet food added. That’s saying a lot. And B) it actually makes a difference in the health and look of their coat. Their coat is shiny and soft and manageable . Every time I’d try a different brand it would go back to looking dull and flat. So yeah… This shit does what it claims to do and it’s worth it. Every penny. Love it.
