This is another variation of Canidae's grain free line of quality dog food . While we do not love seeing potato protein, salt, choline chloride (salt) or sodium selenite in dog foods generally,  overall this product still appears to be a good dog food. We do recommend that you add fresh meat to your dog’s diet if you decide to go with Canidae's Pure Sky.
