We have a hard time believing a company could call this product gold, it should be called black, as in the black death. This is in the top 12 worst ingredients we have ever seen.

Tuffy’s Gold Premium Adult Formula Ingredient Analysis

  1. Chicken By-product meal
  2. Whole grain ground corn
  3. Whole grain ground wheat
  4. Poultry fat
  5. Natural flavors

Chicken by product meal is the lowest grade of chicken that you can find and if it wasn’t for low grade dog foods like this it would go to the dump.

Whole grain ground corn is very bad for dogs and is linked to eye, ear, skin, coat and allergies issues in many dogs.

Whole grain ground wheat should not be in a dog’s diet and cause’s the same issues as corn.

Poultry fat is any kind of animal can be included: “4-D animals” (dead, diseased, disabled, or dying prior to slaughter), turkey, chicken, geese, buzzard, seagulls, misc. roadkill, birds euthanized at shelters and so on.

Natural flavors, this could be anything and be rest assured, it isn’t good.
